North Carolina suspends Romar Morris one game

North Carolina suspended backup running back Romar Morris for one game, a day after he was arrested for driving while impaired.

Morris will miss the Tar Heels' next game, against Pittsburgh on Nov. 15, the school announced in a statement Monday. According to The Associated Press, Chapel Hill police pulled Morris over early Sunday morning for failing to stay in his lane.

Though the school statement did not address the DWI, coach Larry Fedora said, "We hold our players accountable for their actions and when a player makes a poor decision, he must face the consequences. I’m hopeful Romar will learn from his mistake and make better decisions in the future.”

Morris has 44 carries for 162 yards and four touchdowns this season.
