Inman facing suspension

ATHENS – Georgia offensive tackle Daniel Inman has violated a team rule and is in danger of being suspended for the first two games of 2006 season, he told Dawg Post contributor Josh Kendall on Thursday.

Daniel Inman, a senior starter from Hope Mills, N.C., would not specify his rules violation and expressed hope that he won't have to face suspension, but there are strong indications he will. He has started 37 games for the Bulldogs, including 25 in a row.

"I hope not," he said. "We should know here shortly."

Coach Mark Richt could not be reached for comment Thursday night.

Inman's absence could be devastating for the Bulldogs, who already were very thin at offensive tackle. In the spring, Georgia has only three scholarship tackles – Inman and fellow starter Ken Shackleford and backup Michael Turner.

Justin Anderson, one of the team's incoming freshmen who could have provided depth at tackle, said this week that he will attend Hargrave Military Academy after failing to qualify academically. Freshmen Chris Davis and Josh Davis also might be able to contribute at tackle, offensive line coach Neil Callaway said this spring.

Georgia opens the season Sept. 2 against Western Kentucky and probably could survive that game with just two tackles, but the second game of the season is on the road against South Carolina.
