Oregon Suspends Harris for Traffic Violations

Tuesday October 25th, 2011

University of Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris’ life in the fast lane catches up to him once again as he has been suspended by the school for a second traffic incident this year, according to USA Today.

Eugene police stopped Harris for driving without a seatbelt, driving on a suspended license and without insurance on  Monday.

Oregon coach Chip Kelly has not commented on the incident.  But a release from the school states that Harris will be suspended from all football activities pending further developments.

The junior was suspended from the team’s opener against LSU after an earlier traffic incident in which Oregon State Police stopped Harris for driving 115 mph in a 65 mph zone.

As one of the nation’s top cornerbacks returning this season, Harris has nine tackles and an interception in six games this year.
