Kentucky on Thursday confirmed the suspensions of three football players after rumors circulated on the internet.
Junior wide receiver Demarco Robinson has been suspended indefinitely, per a UK spokesman, while freshman defensive end Jason Hatcher and sophomore cornerback Cody Quinn have been suspended for this weekend’s game at Georgia.
No specific details were given on the nature of the suspensions other than “violation of team rules.” Rumors have suggested that more suspensions could be announced this week, but UK declined to comment on whether additional disciplinary action would occur.
Kentucky (2-8, 0-6 SEC) travels to Georgia on Saturday before closing the season at home on Nov. 30 against Tennessee.
Robinson is the Wildcats’ third-leading pass catcher on the season with 20 receptions for 213 yards and two touchdowns. The Georgia native was UK’s leading receiver in last week’s game at Vanderbilt, catching four passes for 49 yards. He is also a starting kickoff and punt return specialist.
Quinn had started three games at cornerback this season, including last week’s game. He has three pass break-ups on the year.
Hatcher has seen consistent playing time as a backup end, recording 15 tackles, three quarterback hurries and one sack. The former Louisville Trinity star was one of the highest-rated prospects in Mark Stoops' first recruiting class at Kentucky.
