FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado State has suspended linebacker Ricky Brewer for the 2009 season for violating team rules.
The university announced the suspension on Thursday, declining to specify the nature of Brewer's infraction because of privacy issues. He will continue to practice with the Rams during his suspension.
Brewer was second on the team with 103 tackles last year. He will retain his final season of eligibility and return in 2010 for his senior season.
In a statement released by the school, Brewer says he made an error in judgment and apologized.
