Green To Miss USC Game, 2 Others

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ Georgia receiver A.J. Green has been

suspended for four games for selling a jersey to someone the NCAA

says qualifies as an agent.

Green sold his Independence Bowl game jersey for $1,000. The

junior, who sat out the season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette,

must miss three more games before eligible to play.

The NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff announced the

ruling on Wednesday.

Georgia says Green has repaid the $1,000 to a charity.

Green has issued an apology to Georgia coaches, his teammates

and fans in a statement released by the school.

Coach Mark Richt says he is disappointed with the ruling. No. 22

Georgia plays at No. 24 South Carolina on Saturday.
