 TALLAHASSE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State backup quarterback Xavier Lee was suspended two games for a violation of team rules on Monday.
Coach Bobby Bowden said the suspension was due to a violation of academic policy, and Lee will be allowed to practice with the team. After practice Monday, Bowden declined to elaborate.
The Seminoles (5-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be forced to use one of two redshirt freshmen, Christian Ponder or D'Vontrey Richardson, behind starter Drew Weatherford on Saturday at No. 2 Boston College (8-0, 4-0).
The junior will miss Florida State's game at No. 11 Virginia Tech on Nov. 10.
Lee began the season behind Weatherford, but replaced him during Florida State's 21-14 win over Alabama. He started the Seminoles' next three games, but after Lee's seven turnovers contributed to consecutive losses to Wake Forest and Miami, Weatherford was put back into the starting lineup last Saturday against Duke.
Lee has completed 53 percent of his passes this season, throwing for five touchdowns and running for three more.
