TCU star DE Fields suspended for first two games

TCU star defensive end Devonte Fields has been suspended for the first two games of the upcoming season.

Head coach Gary Patterson said in a statement that Fields was suspended for violating team and university policy.

The suspension means the Frogs will be without their best defensive player for their Aug. 31 game against LSU at Cowboys Stadium.

The 6-4, 240-pound Fields started all 13 games for TCU and was tabbed the Big 12 defensive freshman of the year by coaches and the Big 12 defensive player of the year by the media.

Fields, who also made several freshman All-America teams, had 53 tackles and 10 sacks. He led the Big 12 in tackles for loss per game and was third in sacks.
