Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema didn't elaborate on the suspensions of senior safeties Shane Carter and Aubrey Pleasant when he met with reporters Saturday, but the punishments will last at least through the end of preseason camp. 

Carter and Pleasant, both listed as backup safeties to Chris Maragos and Jay Valai, will be removed from the 105-man camp roster. Camp lasts until Aug. 29. 

"The part that our guys have really concentrated on," Bielema told reporters, "is when we're in camp the 105 guys that are here, those 105 have got to work. ... All I want is the guys that want to be here and (be) involved and that's where we're at."

Carter's suspension is his second in the last nine months. He missed bowl practices and the Champs Sports Bowl last December for violating team rules.
