‘Good number’ of football players under suspension

After winning their season opener on Thursday night, members of the Drake football team are facing a two-game suspension of their 11-game season.

An unknown number of players were sidelined after violating team policy.

“It’s unfortunately a good number of guys,” Drake head coach Chris Creighton said. “I mean that it’s a larger number than any of us would like it to be.”

The two-game suspension started on Thursday versus Grand View and will continue through the Sept. 8 game against Montana State.

Creighton said no players were arrested, although one player was written up in a residence hall.
He confirmed other than the one player written up, only football team policy was violated.

“It was an in-house, in-team policy,” Creighton said.

The staff of The Times-Delphic will be following up with this story throughout today and the weekend. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
