Chapel Hill, NC, United States (4E Sports) – North Carolina suspended cornerbacks Brian Walker, Desmond Lawrence and M.J. Stewart and backup ram Donnie Miles from the season opener for rules violations Wednesday.
“These players did not meet the high expectations we have for them as members of our program and have been disciplined accordingly,” coach Larry Fedora said in a statement.
The suspensions came one day after the school announced it was investigating an incident among players during fall camp.
According to sources, walk-on receiver Jackson Boyer allegedly suffered a concussion in early August after a physical altercation with teammates at a hotel.
Fedora declined to comment on the investigation or the alleged incident.
