Maryland defensive lineman Isaiah Ross suspended for a year

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

Maryland announced Friday evening that it had suspended defensive lineman Isaiah Ross for a year for violations of team policy.

What violation of team policy could lead to a yearlong suspension? Maryland would not give any details, though the Baltimore Sun did some investigating of its own and found this:

Maryland would not offer details about Ross. The only offense cited in the university's "Policy on Conduct and Ethics for Student-Athletes" and the "Drug Policy for Student-Athletes" that specifically mandates a year-long suspension is a third violation of the drug policy.

Whatever the reason for the suspension, Ross will remain enrolled at Maryland next year. He just won't be playing football.

Ross played in 13 games as a sophomore in 2010, but a knee injury cost him the majority of the 2011 season. Ross played in six games last season and finished with four tackles.

He would have been a fifth-year senior on the team in 2013.
