The start of the 2012 is right around the corner, and with it comes the obligatory rash of announcements regarding players who have been naughty at some point during the offseason.
The latest player facing punitive measures is Kansas’ Justin Carnes (pictured, No. 54), who first-year head coach Charlie Weis announced Saturday has been suspended for the first three games of the 2012 season. The junior will miss games against South Dakota State, Rice and TCU.
Other than violating unspecified team rules, no reason was given for the suspension.
“As I have previously stated, every player on our team knows and understands our rules and regulations,” Weis said in a statement. “They also know the consequences for violations of those rules and regulations.”
Carnes was listed as KU’s starting long snapper entering summer camp after playing in 10 games last season.
