NCAA to hear Green appeal Friday

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- An NCAA committee will hear an appeal by Georgia receiver A.J. Green to reduce his four-game suspension on Friday.

School spokesman Claude Felton says the appeal will be heard over a conference call, opening the possibility that Green could return Saturday when Georgia (1-1) faces No. 12 Arkansas in a crucial Southeastern Conference game.

Green already has missed the Bulldogs' first two games for selling an Independence Bowl jersey for $1,000 to someone deemed an agent by the NCAA. Georgia easily won its opener, 55-7 over Louisiana-Lafayette, but dropped its first SEC game at South Carolina, 17-6.
