Big Ten: Ray Henderson
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
This just in from Minnesota's sports information department:
Minnesota head football coach Tim Brewster has announced that senior defensive end Cedric McKinley and sophomore defensive back Tim Dandridge have each been suspended for the Gophers’ next two games due to a violation of team rules and policies.
The student-athletes will not play in this week’s game with Wisconsin or next week’s game with Purdue.
McKinley has started the Gophers' first four games, recording 11 tackles (3 for loss), a sack, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. The team now will turn to D.L. Wilhite, Ray Henderson and others to fill the void against the Badgers and Boilermakers.
As one of the most physically imposing defensive ends in the Big Ten, McKinley could be a big loss for Minnesota against two good rushing teams.
Dandridge has one tackle in four games after appearing in every contest last fall as a reserve safety.
