Baylor junior tight end Tre'Von Armstead was dismissed from Baylor's program for violating team rules, the university announced on Friday afternoon. Armstead did not play in Baylor's game against Lamar last Saturday for unspecified reasons.
LaQuan McGowan is expected to assume starting tight end duties on the Bears' depth chart.
Last season, Armstead caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown.
Armstead played in Baylor's season opener against SMU.
Baylor will play Rice on Saturday in Waco.
