SportsLine.com wire reports
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska center Richie Incognito was suspended indefinitely Wednesday for repeated violations of team policy.
Coach Bill Callahan announced the suspension after practice.
"I'm really disappointed because he's a really good player," Callahan said. "But no one is bigger than the team."
Callahan would not discuss the details of Incognito's violations.
Incognito has had several run-ins with the law, and last month he was fined $500 after being convicted of misdemeanor assault.
The 6-foot-3, 300-pound junior was a first-team All-Big 12 selection last year. A left tackle his first two years with Nebraska, Incognito moved to center last spring.
Kurt Mann, sophomore, will start at center in Saturday's opener against Western Illinois.

Re: Nebraska's Incognito indefinitely suspended
Apparently Mr. Incognito will now be truly incognito. Although at 300+ pounds that is quite a feat.
WHAT SAY YE?
