MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Arkansas has suspended three players – including two defensive starters – for unspecified violations of team rules. The Razorbacks face East Carolina in the Liberty Bowl on Saturday.

Linebacker Wendel Davis, safety Matt Harris and wide receiver Marques Wade are not expected to play. Davis is the team’s second-leading tackler. Harris is third.

An athletic department spokesman confirmed the suspensions shortly after the Razorbacks finished addressing the media Thursday. Coach Bobby Petrino was not expected to be available to reporters until Friday.
