Wake Forest suspends two more from football team

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe announced the indefinite suspensions of safety Duran Lowe and offensive tackle Devin Bolling for a violation of athletic department policy, according to a university release.

Lowe, a junior, is fifth on the team with 28 tackles this season and started at free safety for Daniel Mack, who was suspended for a violation of team rules, in last week’s loss to Maryland.

Bolling, also a junior, started the season opener against Liberty but has been battling injuries since.

Mack was one of six Demon Deacons players suspended — along with cornerback Merrill Noel, linebacker Mike Olson, guard Frank Souza, running back Deandre Martin and wide receiver Airyn Willis — for the Maryland game for a violation of team rules.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the players’ suspensions were due to marijuana use.

Grobe said the six suspended for the Maryland game are eligible to be reinstated before Wake Forest’s next game, at Virginia next weekend.

Saturday’s release provides no timetable for the return of Lowe and Bolling.
