Colorado suspends receiver Simas -- again
By Graham Watson
Colorado has indefinitely suspended its second-leading receiver.
According to a press release issued by the university, coach Dan Hawkins suspended junior Markques Simas for a violation of team rules.
This is the second time Simas has been suspended from the team. He missed the first two games of the 2009 season because of a violation of team rules as well.
Simas has had trouble staying on the field since joining the team as a highly touted recruit in 2007. He redshirted his first season then missed all of 2008 with academic issues. After his two-game suspension, he finally found his way into a starting role. He finished the season with 43 receptions for 575 yards and three touchdowns.
