Authorities said Patrick was a passenger in a car pulled over late Saturday that was driven by Stanley, who was charged with speeding and possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana.

"Natrez and Jayson, obviously, I'm disappointed in some of the actions there, but we still don't have all the information completely in from that, so their discipline will be handled internally," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Sunday.

Patrick had three tackles in the 28-7 win over Auburn that earned Georgia a spot in the College Football Playoff against Oklahoma. 

Patrick, a junior, was suspended four games after he was arrested on Oct. 5 in Athens on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. 

He also had a marijuana arrest in 2015. With three violations of Georgia's drug policy, Patrick could be dismissed from the team.
