FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has been suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season due to an unspecified violation of “university and team policy.”

Coach Gary Patterson announced the suspension of the Big 12 defensive player of the year in a one-sentence statement Wednesday. Patterson didn’t immediately return a message left on his cellphone. School officials had no further comments or details about the statement.

As a freshman last season, Fields had 18 1/2 tackles for losses and 10 quarterback sacks. Along with being voted the league’s top defender, he was the Big 12 defensive newcomer of the year.

The Horned Frogs open Aug. 31 against LSU at Cowboys Stadium. They play Southeastern Louisiana at home the following week.
