Florida A&M suspends 4 players for Oklahoma Sooners game in Norman

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida A&M heads to fifth-ranked Oklahoma this weekend minus a few of its top players.

Coach Joe Taylor announced the suspension of four players Tuesday, including cornerback Devontae Johnson, who led Florida A&M defenders last season with five interceptions.

Florida A&M officials say the suspensions are for an undisclosed violation of team rules and are only for Saturday's game at Oklahoma (1-0).

Wide receivers Lenworth Lennon and Dewayne Harvey were also suspended along with Daniel Lennon, a backup offensive lineman. Lenworth Lennon was the Rattlers' leading receiver a year ago with 45 catches.

The Rattlers (0-1), a member of the smaller Football Championship Subdivision, lost their opener last weekend at Tennessee State.
