UCLA Suspends Four Football Players For Kansas State Game
Sept. 15, 2009
UCLA head football coach Rick Neuheisel announced today that four players have been suspended from the team due to a violation of team rules and will miss this Saturday's game against Kansas State.
Sophomore cornerback Courtney Viney, freshman running back Milton Knox and freshmen wide receivers Morrell Presley and Randall Carroll will sit out the Kansas State game. The players will participate in team practices during the suspension.
'When you are a member of a team, you have a special commitment to the entities that make up that unit and to those that you represent,' said coach Neuheisel. 'When someone falls short in that regard, there have to be consequences, and then, we move on.'
