Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick has entered a drug treatment program and will not play in the Rose Bowl against Oklahoma on New Year's Day.
Patrick has been arrested twice for marijuana possession in 2017, although one of those charges was dropped. The arrest triggered a drug test because of his probation, however, and he reportedly failed that test. Patrick finished with 35 tackles in 2017 despite missing four games with a suspension, and 2.5 of those tackles went for loss. Reggie Carter will likely get the start in his place in the Rose Bowl.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick (off-field) was not seen at practice during the open media window on Thursday.

Patrick had been practicing up until Thursday. He was arrested for marijuana possession after being pulled over in a car driven by teammate Jayson Stanley at the beginning of December. That possession charge has been dropped for the junior linebacker, but Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart has not publicly stated whether Patrick will be available for the Playoff semifinal against Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. We should have a better idea of how Georgia is handling this situation in the days ahead.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that junior LB Natrez Patrick (off-field) is still with the team.

Patrick was arrested for possession of marijuana at the beginning of December after he and teammate Jayson Stanley were pulled over, but that charge was eventually dropped (Stanley said that the marijuana Patrick was sitting on was his). The junior does still face a probation violation hearing due to an alleged failed drug test following that arrest, but Smart said that this is a separate matter that will not affect Patrick's place on the team. He's currently practicing, though Smart would not say whether he will be available for the Rose Bowl against Oklahoma come New Year's Day.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick is scheduled for a probation-violation hearing in January.

Patrick (6'3/248) allegedly violated his probation with a positive marijuana test. He was initially placed on probation following an October misdemeanor marijuana arrest, with his failed test coming after he was tested in the aftermath of a Dec. 3 arrest on a marijuana possession charge after the Bulldogs defeated Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. While that charge has since been dropped, it triggered the test, which in turn has triggered the probation hearing. That hearing is set for Jan. 11, just three days after the National Championship Game, a game which Georgia would reach if they defeat Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick had his marijuana possession charge dropped on Thursday.

Charges against junior WR Jayson Stanley for DUI were also dropped. Despite the charges being dropped, both players' status for the Rose Bowl against Oklahoma isn't known at the time. Stanley hasn't played much for the Bulldogs, but Patrick has been a starter for much of the year, and ranks sixth on the team in tackles. He also missed four games due to a suspension from a previous marijuana possession charge.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick and junior WR Jayson Stanley were arrested on DUI and marijuana charges on Sunday morning.

Apparently a little too much celebration for this pair of Bulldogs. Patrick, a passenger with Stanley driving, has only been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but he could be in for something of a real punishment. This was his third arrest with the team and his second this season, as he had previously been cited on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in early October. That arrest led to a four-game suspension. We're still awaiting word from Georgia on these arrests.

Georgia junior LB Natrez Patrick was arrested Thursday on misdemeanor marijuana-related charges.

Patrick, a starting linebacker for the Bulldogs, was charged with misdemeanor possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and prohibited stopping, standing or parking. He was released on $1,500 bond. Patrick was also arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges as a freshman. He was suspended one game for that incident, and now may be subject to a four-game suspension under UGA athletic department policies. Patrick is tied for third on the team with 17 tackles.

Georgia sophomore LB Natrez Patrick's status for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette is uncertain due to a shoulder injury.

Patrick was not medically cleared to participate in this past weekend's game against Auburn due to a shoulder injury suffered the previous week. In nine games this season, the 6-foot-3, 248-pound sophomore has registered 55 tackles (4.5 for loss) and a sack.

Georgia sophomore LB Natrez Patrick and sophomore LB Roquan Smith will not be suspended following a recent search of their dorm room for marijuana.

"After receiving an incident report last week," Georgia AD Greg McGarity said in a statement, "we determined that neither Roquan Smith nor Natrez Patrick had violated any Athletic Association rules that would require suspension." He further indicated that both players had been drug tested and that both tests returned negative. Patrick's room was searched a week ago Saturday after an RA tipped off the police to the smell of marijuana. According to the police report, "no marijuana of testable quantity" was found. Both Patrick and Smith will be available to play in Georgia's Saturday showdown with Florida.

Georgia sophomore LB Natrez Patrick and sophomore LB Roquan Smith were investigated after police received a marijuana complaint.

An RA called in the smell of marijuana to authorities on Saturday following Georgia's loss to Vanderbilt. Neither Patrick, nor Smith was arrested in relation to the incident. Per the authorities, "[the search of Patrick's room] produced no marijuana of testable quantity," though Patrick did tell authorities that he kept a little stash in a secret compartment of a fake Arizona Strawberry Tea container. That was subsequently confiscated. It would be a surprise if any disciplinary action came out of this given that no charges have been levied against either young gentleman.

Georgia suspended freshmen LB Natrez Patrick and DE Chauncey Rivers for this weekend’s game against Kentucky.

The pair was arrested Wednesday on misdemeanor marijuana charges. "They made a very poor decision and I’m extremely disappointed," UGA HC Mark Richt said in a statement. "They will be disciplined in an appropriate manner and hopefully have learned a valuable life lesson that will benefit them moving forward."
