Nebraska’s leading rusher Anthony Grant suspended indefinitely
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska opened spring practice with running back Anthony Grant suspended indefinitely to work on academics and other issues, first-year coach Matt Rhule announced.
Grant led the team in rushing with 915 yards and six touchdowns last season. He also caught 18 passes for 104 yards.
“Working on academics and general things. Nothing bad other than just our standards as a program,” Rhule said. “That will be day by day. Good kid. Just have to get him going in the right direction.”
Rhule said kick returner and reserve receiver Tommi Hill also is suspended. He did not specify a reason.
Backup tight ends Chris Hickman and James Carnie and reserve cornerback Tyreke Johnson have left the team.
