The release cites a team rules violation and offered no further details.

For Harvey-Clemons, one of the most talented sophomores in the SEC, it marks his second suspension this year. He was withheld from Georgia's first game of the season, a loss to Clemson, for violating the school's drug policy. Harvey-Clemons admitted to campus police that he had smoked marijuana in his dorm room.

Harvey-Clemons started 11 games for the Bulldogs this year, making 66 tackles, breaking up three passes and recovering three fumbles. Dawson didn't see as much action as Harvey-Clemons, making 13 stops on the year.

Harvey-Clemons (6-5, 212 pounds) size and athleticism suggest NFL potential, although he could outgrow the safety position and move to linebacker next year, a position he's been exposed to in practice. The Bulldogs had a poor year in pass defense, allowing 232 yards per game.
