LB Washington Apolgizes To Dawg Teammates Over Arrest; Drew Let’s It Rip Regarding Playing Time

Fresh off a Sunday morning DUI arrest that will knock him out of back-to-back SEC games, Georgia linebacker Cornelius Washington (at left) apologized to his teammates prior to yesterday’s practice.

“He knows what he did,” said teammate Reuben Faloughi.  “It was a decision.  He feels it.  I don’t think anybody’s trying to point fingers at him because he knowns that he made a wrong decision.  The pressure’s there, so everybody’s just supporting him and making sure these tough times pass or him.  And I think he’s really gonna bounce back.”

UGA fans are now hoping to see five-star freshman Ray Drew step in for Washington.  So far he’s only played in two games, but he made it clear to the press yesterday that he’s been right on defensive coordinator Todd Grantham’s tail hoping to get into games.

“I’m right there behind him,” Drew said.  “If he were to (pass gas), I’d be the first one to smell it.”

Ah, but will Drew sniff the field Saturday against Tennessee… or will third-year sophomore Chase Vasser get the majority of the work?  Stay tuned.
