Two University of Georgia freshmen football players were arrested on marijuana charges early Wednesday morning. 

According to UGA Head Coach Mark Richt, Natrez Patrick and Chauncey Rivers have been suspended for Saturday's game against Kentucky. 

"They made a very poor decision and I'm extremely disappointed," Richt said. "They will be disciplined in an appropriate manner and hopefully have learned a valuable life lesson that will benefit them moving forward." 

Both players were arrested on misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges. 

Natrez is a linebacker and graduated from Mays High School in Atlanta. Rivers is a defensive lineman and graduated from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain.
