Georgia RB King suspended for two games

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia tailback Caleb King has been suspended two games by coach Mark Richt following King's arrest this week.

Richt announced Tuesday the suspension of the team's second-leading rusher. King will miss Saturday's game against Vanderbilt and the game against Kentucky on Oct. 23.

Washaun Ealey, who leads Georgia with 246 yards rushing, is expected to start at tailback.

King was arrested on Monday and charged with failure to appear at a court date for a speeding ticket in nearby Walton County.

King is Georgia's 11th player to be arrested this year.
