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.
