NC State running back Mustafa Greene is suspended for today's game against South Alabama (6 p.m. ET, ESPN3), a school spokesman confirmed. No reason was given, but coach Tom O'Brien is expected to address it after the game.
It seems like every time Greene is on the verge of making a comeback, something prevents it. He was the team’s leading rusher in 2010 with 597 yards, and he caught 30 passes for another 272 yards. Greene suffered a foot injury in spring practice of 2011 and missed the entire season. He missed most of spring drills this year and part of preseason camp to concentrate on academics, but ended up leading the team in rushing in the opener, despite being the third back in the game.
Greene started the win at Connecticut.
