End not in sight for Miami WR Moore's suspension
ESPN.com news services
Miami wide receiver Ryan Moore has been suspended indefinitely for violating team policy, coach Larry Coker said Saturday.
Moore had already been suspended for the team's first two games. The fifth-year senior could return, depending on what coaches learn about the situation behind his suspension, The Miami Herald reported.
"I have suspended Ryan Moore indefinitely from this football team," Coker was quoted as saying in the Herald. "Not that he won't return, but it will be pending some action. I have made that suspension for violation of team policy, and we'll see as this thing progresses."
Coker said Moore "may be back. I'll re-evaluate day by day. It's disappointing anytime you have to suspend a player for anything."
Along with Moore, running back Tyrone Moss linebacker James Bryant and receiver Rashaun Jones have been suspended for the 12th-ranked Hurricanes' opener Sept. 4 against No. 11 Florida State.
Moore was suspended for the Peach Bowl at the end of last season, and, in a related punishment, already had been suspended for the first two games of this season for breaking team rules.
Moore, a senior, started nine games last season and caught 28 passes for 464 yards and four touchdowns. Bryant and Jones played mostly on special teams in 2005.
