Richt says Georgia backup safety Sheldon Dawson 'not a member of the team anymore'

Georgia safety Sheldon Dawson, who appeared in two games this season in a backup role, is no longer a member of the team.

Coach Mark Richt says Monday that Dawson "is not a member of the team anymore," but provided no further details.

Dawson, a junior, made one start in 2013. He had three tackles this season.

Richt also said freshman tailback Sony Michel probably won't need surgery for his shoulder injury, but won't play this week for No. 13 Georgia against Vanderbilt.
