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.
