Georgia Bulldogs defensive end James DeLoach and defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor won't face suspensions but will be subject to "significant additional internal discipline" by the athletic association and the football program, according to a report on Thursday from the Associated Press.

Earlier on Thursday, they were accepted into a pretrial intervention program to address their March arrest for cashing illegal checks. The misdemeanor charges they face will be dropped if they complete the program. Tray Matthews, a safety who had been on the team, was dismissed from the squad earlier this week; wide receiver Uriah LeMay left Georgia and plans to transfer.

The four men were charged with receiving duplicate payments for checks totaling $71.50. The checks were issued by Georgia's athletic department.
