ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia's long list of players suspended or
dismissed from the team by coach Mark Richt continues to grow.
Only hours before the team's first practice, Richt said Monday
junior linebacker Darius Dewberry has been suspended for the first
two games of the season. Richt said Dewberry acknowledged he caused damage to property at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens this weekend.

On Saturday night, Richt announced the indefinite suspensions of
two players -- snapper Jeff Henson, following his second
alcohol-related arrest, and safety Donavon Baldwin, who was injured
in a fight in Athens early Saturday.

Eight players have been arrested this offseason. Dewberry is the
sixth player to be suspended or dismissed from the team, and Richt
said he's concerned about the team's focus and the damage to the
team's reputation.
