ATLANTA -- Miami wide receiver Ryan Moore has been suspended for violating team policy and will not play in the Peach Bowl against No. 10 LSU on Friday night.

Miami coach Larry Coker would not reveal specifically why Moore, who is considering skipping his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL draft, did not accompany the ninth-ranked Hurricanes to Atlanta this week.

Moore had 28 catches, third-most on the team, for 464 yards and four touchdowns this season. Lance Leggett will likely replace Moore in the starting lineup.

The Hurricanes had their first practice Monday at the Georgia Dome, a 90-minute session. It was Miami's first workout in four days following a break for Christmas.
