Two suspended for 'conduct detrimental to the team'
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A pair of Syracuse football players were suspended by head coach Greg Robinson "for conduct detrimental to the team," according to a report in Monday's Syracuse Post-Standard.
Starting cornerback Tanard Jackson and backup receiver J.J. Bedle were suspended by Robinson as Syracuse prepares to wrap up its spring football practice schedule. The Orange plays its annual spring game on Saturday at the Carrier Dome.
Robinson said both players could return to the team while refusing to cite specifics on the suspension. He called it "family business" and said that the players will determine whether they'll return.
Bedle has been struggling to stay out of the bottom of the depth chart at receiver. Over the winter, Bedle was allowed to participate as a walk-on with the Syracuse men's basketball team, then came back to the football team for winter conditioning drills.
