Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis announced here Monday afternoon that rising junior running back James Sims has been suspended for the first three games of the 2012 season for a violation of team rules.
"Every player on our team knows and understands our rules and regulations," said Weis. "They also know the consequences for violations."
Sims was the top rusher for the Jayhawks in 2010 and 2011. The Irving, Texas native has compiled 1,469 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns in his two seasons at KU, including five games with 100 or more yards rushing.
