|UI Football Player Suspended Indefinitely
|CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois football coach Ron Zook says junior linebacker Ashante Williams has been suspended indefinitely following a violation of team rules.
No additional details about the suspension were immediately available Saturday.
Spokesman Kent Brown says the university won't comment any further on the violation of team rules. Brown says he isn't sure what the situation means for Williams' permanent status on the team or at the university.
Williams, a junior from Mayfield, Ohio, was redshirted the 2008 season and enrolled at the University of Illinois in January 2008.
