Second-leading receiver among three Texas players suspended for bowl game

Even as it seems like it of late, bowl suspensions aren’t just limited to Notre Dame.

Texas announced Friday afternoon that three players, running back Toniel Carter, tight end Garrett Gray and wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey, have all been suspended for the Dec. 27 Texas Bowl matchup with Missouri.  Other than unspecified violations of team rules, no specific reason was given for the suspensions.

Humphrey is the most notable name amongst the suspended trio.

In the regular season, Humphrey was second on the Longhorns in receptions with 37 and yards with 431.  He also added another touchdown — and 41 yards on six carries — on the ground.

Given Chris Warren‘s decision to transfer, Carter’s absence will also be more than a bit of a loss as his 252 yards are good for fourth on the team.  Warren’s 314 yards, meanwhile, are third.

Gray has caught four passes for 18 yards this season.
