Officials say it was his third marijuana-related arrest, which meant that he could have been dismissed from the team.

When Patrick was arrested earlier this month, it resulted in him being drug tested due to his probation. Reggie Carter will likely get the start in his place in the Rose Bowl.

Troubled Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick is entering a drug treatment program after violating his probation and will miss Georgia's College Football Playoff semifinal game against Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.

The inpatient drug rehabilitation program is in Augusta, according to a probation revocation document.

"Natrez is getting some treatment right now and we're glad we've put this behind him", William Healan III, Patrick's attorney told ESPN.

Sources tell ESPN that Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick will not be playing the Georgia Bulldogs when they face the Sooners on January 1.

Patrick tested positive for marijuana in Athens-Clarke County after he was arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Barrow County hours after Georgia won the SEC championship on December 2.

Patrick initially faced a misdemeanor charge for his latest arrest, which was later dropped. Healan III said that his client tested negative in a UGA-administered drug test following the arrest.

As for Athens-Clarke County's reasoning for Patrick's probation violation, the document states he tested positive for marijuana on December 6, and that he tested positive for alcohol and opiates on December 19. He was reportedly arrested in October this year and as a freshman in 2015.

He collected 35 tackles (2.5 of which came for a loss) over the course of the eight games he appeared in with the Bulldogs this season.
