Nearly a month after getting hit with a domestic violence charge, Sanders Commings has been slapped with a suspension to be served this upcoming season.
In a press release Wednesday afternoon, Georgia announced that the cornerback will serve a two-game suspension to begin the 2012 season. The soon-to-be senior will miss the opener at home against Buffalo as well as the SEC opener against Missouri in Columbia.
Commings was arrested Jan. 21 and charged with domestic violence and simple battery following an incident involving his girlfriend. It was alleged, according to witnesses, that Commings struck the female victim in the face during the course of an argument.
In 2011, Commings started all 14 games for the Bulldogs and has played in all but one game the past three seasons.
