Mississippi coach Ed Orgeron says today that he has suspended defensive end Greg Hardy for a violation of team rules.
Orgeron says the suspension is indefinite and offered few details, though he did say later that the Southeastern Conference's sack leader was not in legal trouble.
Hardy leads the SEC with eight sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. He was left home and did not play in Saturday's 17-3 loss at Auburn.
The Rebels play Northwestern State of the Football Championship Subdivision on Saturday in Oxford.
Hardy, perhaps the team's best athlete and a young star in the SEC, had started just four of eight games before the Auburn game with no explanation from Orgeron.
