Since this is Patrick’s second drug-related arrest during his time at UGA, the university’s student-athlete code of conduct handbook calls for a four-game suspension that would begin immediately with this weekend’s game against Vanderbilt. He would then miss games additional games against Missouri, Florida and South Carolina before being eligible to return for the Nov. 11 game against Auburn.
The football program has yet to address Patrick’s status moving forward.
Patrick has started every game at outside linebacker for the Bulldogs this season. His 17 tackles are tied for third on the team.
