PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh defensive back Elijah Fields was suspended for the upcoming season Tuesday by coach Dave Wannstedt for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Fields played in eight games as a freshman, mostly on special teams, and was expected to compete for a starting job this season.
``Although we have suspended Elijah for the season, he will remain part of our program and practice,'' Wannstedt said in a statement. ``We will continue to demand that he work hard on the field and in the classroom so that he can be an important part of our program's future.''
