Syracuse Suspends Three Football Players

By  | 

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Syracuse Orange have taken yet another
hit with the suspension of three players.

A day after coach Doug Marrone announced that star receiver Mike
Williams had quit the team, Marrone said Tuesday that he has suspended tailback Antwon Bailey, defensive end Torrey Ball and offensive guard Andrew Tiller for violating team rules.

The first-year coach also announced that junior defensive end Jared Kimmel will have season-ending knee surgery to repair his left knee, which was previously injured and surgically reconstructed in 2007.

The Orange (3-5) will have senior center Jim McKenzie back in the lineup for Saturday's game at No. 14 Pitt (7-1). McKenzie missed the last three games with a hand injury.
