Wideout Malcolm Lane’s comeback attempted has been derailed.
Head coach Greg McMackin announced on the Warrior Beat Show that Lane, who did not play last season to focus on academics, has been suspended for violating team rules.
That means Lane will not participate in the offseason conditioning program. He also is not expected to be available for spring practice.
It was hoped Lane would compete to reclaim the starting right wideout’s job he held in 2008. Jovonte Taylor, who led the Warriors in yards-after-catch average last year, also will not be back.
Royce Pollard, Billy Ray Stutzmann and Darius Bright are the likely top contenders at right wideout.
