Starting Georgia outside linebacker Cornelius Washington was arrested early Sunday near Commerce, Ga., and charged with speeding and driving under the influence. He will sit out the Bulldogs' upcoming games against Tennessee and Vanderbilt following the arrest. Georgia coach Mark Richt said...

"He feels awful," "He knows he let the team down, let his coaches down, let his family down, the Bulldog nation in general. He understands that there's going to be a price to be paid. He's going to take his punishment like a man and come back and finish strong for us. That's kind of his state of mind right now."

Washington leads the team with 3½ sacks and eight quarterback hurries and also has 4½ tackles for loss.
