Notre Dame RB Atkinson suspended for Pinstripe for breaking team rules

Notre Dame says running back George Atkinson III and reserve

cornerback Jalen Brown will not play in the Pinstripe Bowl because

of a violation of team rules.

Coach Brian Kelly announced the suspensions in a statement three

hours before kickoff against Rutgers on Saturday.

Atkinson is one of four tailbacks the Fighting Irish have used

in a rotation this season.
