Ole Miss suspends Trae Elston for apparent attempt to kick 'Bama RB
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has decided to suspend Trae Elston for the first half of Saturday's game at Texas A&M after the junior defensive back appeared to attempt to kick Alabama running back Kenyan Drake at the end of a pass play.
From The Clarion-Ledger:
"We want our players to uphold our values at all times," Freeze said. "We'll move forward from it, and Trae is a good kid. It was an attempt, in frustration, I think to knock the ball out after a third down was converted. He made a bad decision. I talked to Trae this morning and he understands that's not how we want to go about things. I don't think there was any intent to injure or hurt. It's very unfortunate that it happened on a play where a young man suffered an injury. Our thoughts are with him.
