Inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough will not face any future disciplinary measures relating to an incident that caused him to be suspended from the TaxSlayer Bowl.
Former Georgia interim head coach Bryan McClendon suspended Kimbrough but never explained why. Head coach Kirby Smart said on Tuesday that he spoke with Kimbrough and that it's an issue the program has moved past.
"Tim Kimbrough is a guy that had a little bit of an issue before the bowl that we were not part of," Smart said. "We talked to him about that and we’ve addressed it. Tim has done a nice job of doing what we asked him to do. Tim’s back with us. Tim’s repping. He's got a clean slate."
Smart was also asked about defensive end Chauncey Rivers and his standing with the team. Smart said Rivers will go through spring practice but is under the university's disciplinary policy since he was arrested for possession of marijuana twice during the 2015 season.

Rivers is facing a three-game suspension to start the year, since he already sat out the TaxSlayer Bowl.
"Chauncey, he’s been a university issue," Smart said. "They’re handling that. University issues, as far as we go, he’ll go through spring as normal. We know he’ll have some stuff he’s got to adhere to until the beginning of the year."
