Idaho State has suspended football coach Mike Kramer for this Saturday's game at Montana for violating the university's conduct policy, athletic director Jeff Tingey announced Tuesday.

Pocatello police and the university began investigating Kramer after wide receiver Derek Graves reported his coach shoved him to the ground during an Oct. 3 practice.

A video obtained by ESPN shows Kramer going face to face with a player wearing a helmet, then using two hands to shove the player, who falls to the ground.

Graves' attorney said his client suffered neck and back spasms as a result of the fall.
