Georgia Tech Vs. Miami: Starter Micanor Regis Suspended Over Team Rules

'Nother update: Here's Regis punching a Tar Heels player right in the unsportsmanlikes.

Miami Hurricanes senior defensive lineman Micanor Regis was suspended for the team's Saturday game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets due to a notorious violation of team rules. Regis is sixth on the team in tackles, leading all defensive linemen -- usually an impressive feat for a tackle. He's also posted three tackles for loss, a sack and a forced fumble.

As always, there's no telling what the suspension is for, but some are saying he was caught on film delivering some non-football violence during last week's game against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Regis was found to have accepted minor benefits from Nevin Shapiro despite not appearing in Charles Robinson's blockbuster report on the Canes. He avoided suspensions earlier in the year when those were being handed out. This suspension doesn't appear to have anything to do with those, of course.

Update: Yep.

#UM coach Al Golden: "Micanor's actions in the North Carolina game will not be tolerated."
