Four Louisiana Tech players suspended

Louisiana Tech receiver Cruz Williams and three other players have been suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules, the school announced Friday.

Williams, receivers Tim Molton and R.P. Stuart and linebacker Kiamni Washington were suspended Monday. The four players have not participated in any team meetings or practices since then.

Williams and Stuart are the team's top returning receivers this season. Williams had 259 yards and three touchdowns last season, though he has battled through injuries, and Stuart had 249 yards and one touchdown catch.

Molton, a transfer from LSU, was expected to contribute to the receiving corps this season after sitting out 2009 because of NCAA rules.

The Bulldogs open the 2010 season Sept. 4 against Grambling State in the Port City Classic. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. at Independence Stadium in Shreveport.
