LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Second-team All-Big 12 wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe and junior defensive tackle Jamal Greene have been suspended from the Kansas program for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Neither of the players has practiced with the Jayhawks since the team began spring work on March 9, Coach Mark Mangino said Friday.

"He's been out since we began practice," Mangino said of Briscoe. "I'll review his case next week. Him and Jamal Greene both."

Briscoe had 92 receptions for school-record totals of 1,407 yards and 15 touchdowns last season as a sophomore, ranking fourth nationally with 108.2 receiving yards a game. He earned offensive MVP honors at the Jayhawks' Insight Bowl victory over Minnesota and shared the team's most improved offensive player with Kerry Meier. Greene had 21 tackles, six tackles for losses and two sacks for the Jayhawks last season. He started eight games, including the Jayhawks' final seven games.

The Jayhawks will continue spring practice until their spring game on April 11.
