Kansas LS Justin Carnes Suspended 3 Games For Violation Of Team Rules

Kansas Jayhawks long snapper Justin Carnes has been suspended for three games for a violation of team rules, according to Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press.

Carnes, a junior, served as the Jayhawks' long snapper for field goals and extra points in 10 out of the 12 games last season, and also handled the same duties on punts occasionally in 2010. He is listed first on KU's depth chart at the position this season, but that didn't stop head coach Charlie Weis from dishing out punishment for the undisclosed violation.

"As I have previously stated, every player on our team knows and understands our rules and regulations," said Weis. "They also know the consequences for violations of those rules and regulations."

Freshman Paul Clark and sophomore Justin Puthoff are listed behind Carnes at the longsnapper position. It is currently unclear which one, if any, will get the majority of the reps in Carnes' absence.
