ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt says he's still deciding how to discipline four players arrested last week on charges of illegal check-cashing.

The players, including starting safety Tray Matthews, continue to work with the team in spring practice. Richt says that does not mean he has ruled out dismissals for the four, including defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach and wide receiver Uriah LeMay.

Richt said Tuesday the four, who received double payments for checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department, have been assigned extra work, including early morning running. Richt says there will be more punishment and says "I'm just thinking it through real good."

Following the arrests by University of Georgia police, the four face misdemeanor charges of theft by deception.
