Michigan State Football: WR Macgarrett Kings Jr. suspended for violation of team rules

According to a report from MLive.com, the absence of Michigan State’s second-leading receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. from spring sessions can now be explained.  Kings was suspended from the team for a violation of team rules.

Michigan State receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. has been suspended for spring drills on account of an undisclosed violation of team rules, according to Coach Mark Dantonio.

Because of a strict media policy we’re just learning about this news now, although what actually caused Dantonio to implement the punishment, we might not ever know.

Kings, a junior this season, was the second-leading receiver for the Rose Bowl champion Spartans in 2013, catching 43 balls for 513 yards and three touchdowns while also being a contributor in the specials teams department as well with 20 punt returns for 206 yards.

Dantonio also did go on to say that he expects that Kings will return and he’s a front runner for the full-time punt return this season as the team gets set to defend their Big Ten title.
