TCU star defensive end Devonte Fields suspended for two games
In a short press release, the school announced that Fields was suspended for a violation of team and university policy.
There was no comment from coach Gary Patterson and no further details were given.
TCU opens the season against LSU on August 31 at Cowboys Stadium in Fields’ hometown of Arlington, Texas. He will also miss the Sept. 7 home opener vs. Southeastern Louisiana.
Fields (6-4, 240) started all 13 games last season, totaling 53 tackles (34 solo) and a team-leading 18.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks.
Big 12 coaches voted him the league’s Defensive Freshman of the Year and he was the AP’s Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Newcomer of the Year.
