NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As expected, linebacker Natrez Patrick did not make the trip to Vanderbilt following his arrest Thursday night for a misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

With Patrick out, junior Juwan Taylor received his first career start alongside Roquan Smith.

Freshmen Monty Rice and Nate McBride could also see additional reps for Georgia, which will also be without senior linebacker Reggie Carter, who suffered what is believed to be a concussion last week at Tennessee.

Patrick came in as the team’s sixth-leading tackler with 17.

The Bulldog junior was arrested by Athens Clarke County Police at 11:37 p.m. Thursday night and booked into the Clarke County jail for misdemeanor possession of marijuana as well as a parking violation. He was released Friday at 12:25 a.m. on bonds totaling $1,500.

Two years ago, Patrick was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession and wound up missing one game.

According to the Georgia student-athlete handbook, Patrick stands to miss the next four games as a two-time offender.
