The three defensive starters who will miss today’s Rice game are CB De’Vante Harris, LB Steven Jenkins and DE Gavin Stansbury. Receiver Edward Pope, a backup, also will miss the first two games.
The latest suspensions, announced by school officials, means eight different Aggies will serve disciplinary suspensions of some sort against the Owls. Also out for today’s game are DL Kirby Ennis and DB Floyd Raven. Two players are suspended for half of today’s game: DB Deshazor Everett and QB Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner.
