Ark. State dismisses WR Lucas from team

CBSSports.com wire reports

JONESBORO, Ark. -- Arkansas State coach Gus Malzahn says wide receiver Earl Lucas has been dismissed from the football team for violating team rules.

Lucas, a sophomore from Prattville, Ala., had 20 catches for 225 yards last season for the Red Wolves on their way to a 10-3 season and Sun Belt Conference championship.

The announcement follows Friday's suspension of another wide receiver, Tres Houston, for the entire season, also for violating team rules. Also, former Auburn running back Michael Dyer was dismissed from the team last month.

Arkansas State opens Saturday at Oregon.
