Marquel Wade Suspended For South Carolina Game, SEC Announces

The SEC has announced Arkansas Razorbacks wide receiver Marquel Wade has been suspended for the team's upcoming game against the South Carolina Gamecocks. Wade was ejected last weekend after laying out a Vanderbilt Commodores punt returner who didn't even have the ball, then carrying on about it all the way to the locker room

Wade apologized on Monday, saying he thought Jonathan Krause has the ball before the hit. You can watch the video here.

Coach Bobby Petrino, known for commenting briefly, commented briefly on the news of the suspension: 

We have addressed the matter and will comply with the league's decision.    

On offense, Wade has nine touches for 99 yards on the season, with his two best games coming against New Mexico and Missouri State. His primary contributions have come on special teams.
