ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech freshman Dedrick Mills, the team’s leading rusher, has been suspended for two games for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

The suspension, announced by coach Paul Johnson on Wednesday, is the second of the season for Mills. He also was held out of Georgia Tech’s home opener against Mercer on Sept. 10, also for a violation of team rules.

Mills will miss Saturday’s game at No. 18 Virginia Tech and a Nov. 19 game against Virginia. Those are the Yellow Jackets’ final two Atlantic Coast Conference games. He will be eligible to play against Georgia on Nov. 26.

Mills leads the team with 578 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. He also missed Georgia Tech’s win over Duke on Oct. 29 due to an injury.
