Defensive end Jason Hatcher and cornerback Cody Quinn have been suspended for Saturday's game at Georgia and wide receiver Demarco Robinson is suspended indefinitely, all for "violation of team rules," UK spokesman Tony Neely said Thursday.
Rumors began circulating on Thursday afternoon that the UK football program would be suspending players. Neely said just after 6 p.m. that the suspensions of Hatcher, Quinn and Robinson are "all I have."
Quinn and Robinson are listed as starters, while Hatcher, a second-stringer, is a significant player on the Wildcats' defense.
Quinn, a sophomore from Middletown, Ohio, has 26 tackles this season including 1.5 for loss. He's broken up three passes.
Hatcher, a freshman from Louisville, has 15 tackles and a sack.
Robinson, a junior from Ellenwood, Ga., has 20 catches for 213 yards and two touchdowns.
The Wildcats (2-8, 0-6 Southeastern Conference) play the Bulldogs Saturday at 7 p.m. and close out the season next week with a home game against Tennessee.
