Jonathan Ledbetter can finally take the field for the Georgia Bulldogs this season.
On Tuesday, it was announced that the sophomore defensive lineman has been cleared to return from his six-game suspension to start 2016. Ledbetter was suspended due to two offseason alcohol-related arrests.
“We’re excited to have him back him,” head coach Kirby Smart said. “How much he’ll play will depend on how (he practices this week.)”
The Bulldogs play host to Vanderbilt this weekend, so Ledbetter’s first action of the season will be conference play.
Ledbetter should provide a nice boost and additional depth to a defensive front that seems to be coming into its own over the past few weeks. Last weekend against South Carolina, the ‘Dawgs recorded five sacks.
Kickoff between Georgia and Vanderbilt is set for noon ET at Sanford Stadium with live coverage on the SEC Network.
