LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech receivers L.A. Reed and Marquis Johnson have been suspended from the squad for unspecified reasons and won't play in the Cotton Bowl, coach Mike Leach said.

Leach said Wednesday that the two won't participate in practices or the Jan. 2 game against Alabama (9-2). He said he would revisit their future with the Red Raiders (9-2) during January.

He declined to provide any further information on the suspensions.

Reed, a redshirt freshman, caught 11 passes for 136 yards this season. Johnson, a junior, had 13 catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.
