ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia players James DeLoach and Jonathan Taylor face ''significant additional internal discipline'' but no suspensions after being accepted into a pre-trial intervention program Thursday for their March arrests for illegal check cashing.

DeLoach, Taylor, and two former Georgia players - safety Tray Matthews and wide receiver Uriah LeMay - appeared in Clarke County State Court on Thursday. Misdemeanor charges for the four will be dropped if they complete the program.

Matthews was dismissed from the team by coach Mark Richt on Tuesday. LeMay has left Georgia and plans to transfer.

The four were charged with receiving double payments for checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department. They were arrested by University of Georgia police in March and charged with theft by deception.

Matthews, Taylor and DeLoach deposited the paper checks through a mobile device and also cashed the checks at a convenience store, according to University of Georgia Chief of Police Jimmy Williamson.

LeMay was charged with cashing a roommate's check which already had been deposited through a mobile device, according to Williamson.

The four were allowed to participate in spring football.

Matthews started six of the eight games he played as a freshman in 2013. He had 23 solo tackles and missed five games with a hamstring injury.

Matthews' Twitter account said he plans to transfer to Auburn or Louisville. Former Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham now heads Louisville's defense.

Two former Georgia defensive players - safety Josh Harvey-Clemons and cornerback Shaq Wiggins - already have transferred to Louisville. Harvey-Clemons was dismissed following last season after multiple suspensions.

In announcing the dismissal of Matthews on Tuesday, Richt said ''We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right.''

According to Thursday's statement released by Georgia, DeLoach and Taylor ''have and will face significant additional internal discipline from both the UGA athletic association and the football program.''
