Bielema suspends 3 Wisconsin players

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema has suspended three players for

violating team rules.

School spokesman Brian Lucas tells The Associated Press wide

receiver Kraig Appleton, defensive end Shelby Harris and linebacker

Nick Hill have been banned indefinitely from team activities, such

as workouts. Lucas says they remain students at the university.

Appleton will be a sophomore next season. Harris and Hill will

be redshirt freshmen.

The team is scheduled to begin spring practice in March.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was the first to report the

suspensions Sunday.
