Michigan State defensive end Corey Freeman has been suspended for Saturday's spring game after being ticketed Monday for driving on a suspended license and for not disclosing to a police officer that he was carrying a concealed weapon.

Freeman, a junior from Cleveland Heights, Ohio, appeared in 11 games last season and recorded six tackles (two tackles for loss).

He faces a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine for the charge of driving on a suspended license. He could face additional fines for the weapons charge. Court records show he has a permit for the weapon.

A Michigan State spokesman told the Lansing State Journal that Freeman would miss the spring game for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
