LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has suspended leading rusher Raymond Sanders for Saturday's game against Tennessee for violating a team rule.
Sanders, who has a team-best 464 yards on 107 carries with three touchdowns, sat out most of the first half of last week's 59-17 loss at Georgia in what the coach said afterward was for disciplinary reasons. Stoops says he received more information Monday morning leading to the latest punishment, though he didn't say what rules the running back broke.
The running back's participation in Saturday's senior day activities will be determined on Tuesday.
Sanders' absence will likely mean more carries for freshman Jojo Kemp, just behind Sanders with 460 yards rushing on 95 attempts with three TDs for Kentucky (2-9, 0-7 Southeastern Conference).
