Aggies suspend four for rules violations
By Sam Khan Jr.
Texas A&M announced before Saturday's kickoff against Rice that four players will be suspended for the first two games of the season.
Senior linebacker Steven Jenkins, junior defensive end Gavin Stansbury, sophomore cornerback De'Vante Harris and redshirt freshman receiver Edward Pope are all suspended two games for "violating Texas A&M athletics department rules and regulations," according to the school.
Jenkins, Stansbury and Harris are starters and the Aggies already had three other key defensive players (defensive tackle Kirby Ennis, cornerback Deshazor Everett and junior safety Floyd Raven) suspended for some or all of Saturday's game. Ennis and Raven are missing the entire game; Everett is missing a half.
