Georgia kicker facing possible suspension after BUI arrest

The Associated PressJuly 2, 2013 

— Georgia sophomore kicker Marshall Morgan is facing a possible suspension following his arrest for boating under the influence.

According to Putnam County Sherriff’s Chief Deputy Russell Blenk, Morgan was arrested Saturday night on Lake Sinclair by a Georgia Department of Natural Resources officer. Morgan was charged with operating a watercraft under the influence and towing a skier without a life preserver on board.

Blenk says Morgan was released Saturday at 10:35 p.m. on $1,724 bond.

Georgia spokesman Claude Felton said Tuesday coach Mark Richt is aware of the situation. If Morgan is suspended for one game, he would miss the Bulldogs’ opener at Clemson on Aug. 31.

Dyer seeks another chance

Former Auburn and Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer said he would prefer to play college football rather than enter the NFL supplemental draft.

Dyer, 22, was the offensive MVP of the national championship game won by Auburn following the 2010 season. He transferred to Arkansas State to follow Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn but was suspended after being caught with a gun during a traffic stop before ever playing a down.
