Clemson suspends 4 football players for season opener

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says two returning starters in defensive end Corey Crawford and offensive lineman David Beasley are among four players who'll miss the Tigers' opening game with Georgia for violating team rules.
Swinney announced the punishments for Crawford, Beasley, backup offensive lineman Shaq Anthony and reserve cornerback Garry Peters on Tuesday, a day before the Tigers begin spring drills. He did not specify what the players did to get suspended.
Swinney called the four good young men, but said they broke rules and must understand there are consequences for their actions.
Clemson opens the season at Georgia on August 30th.
Crawford started 12 of 13 games last season and finished with 52 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. Beasley started seven games.
