Georgia’s secondary will be without two key pieces in the Jan. 1 Gator Bowl, as the school announced on Monday that defensive backs Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson will not participate in the game.

Georgia sports communications director Claude Felton reported that the two sophomores will not face Nebraska in the bowl game due to “violation of team regulations,” but had no further information on the players’ suspensions.

This is the second time Harvey-Clemons has been suspended this season. He also missed the Bulldogs’ season-opening 38-35 loss to the Clemson Tigers after he and then teammate Ty Flournoy-Smith admitted to smoking marijuana. Harvey-Clemons has played in every game since, recording 66 tackles, 5.5 for loss, three fumble recoveries and an interception.

Dawson has played in every game and has 13 tackles.
