Georgia Gets Key Player Back Ahead Of Baylor Game
Georgia gets a key player back ahead of the Baylor game, and that is great news for Kirby Smart’s offense.
Heading into the Sugar Bowl, many wondered whether Bulldogs running back James Cook would be available.
Cook was arrested two weeks ago for driving without a valid license and being in possession of an open container of alcohol in the passenger area.
As a result, there was some speculation that Cook would be punished and miss the New Year’s Day match-up.
Fortunately for Georgia, it appears that will not in fact be the case.
According to Smart, Cook passed a drug test and will be permitted to participate in the final game of the season.
James Cook is cleared to play in the Sugar Bowl despite his arrest earlier this month. Smart said Cook passed a marijuana test.

Cook recorded 176 rushing yards and 132 receiving yards this past season behind D’Andre Swift.
It remains to be seen whether Baylor will be able to figure out a way to slow down Georgia’s offense.
