Kentucky's starting left tackle Darrian Miller and backup wide receiver Rashad Cunningham are suspended for the team's opener against Tennessee-Martin on Aug. 30 due to a violation of team rules, coach Mark Stoops said.
Miller, a senior, has started each game in the last two seasons. Redshirt junior Cunningham did not play last season because of academics and as a redshirt freshman in 2012 he appeared in six games.
