Notre Dame suspends RB Atkinson for Pinstripe

Updated:
NEW YORK -

Notre Dame says running back George Atkinson III and reserve cornerback Jalen Brown will not play in the Pinstripe Bowl because of a violation of team rules.

Coach Brian Kelly announced the suspensions in a statement three hours before kickoff against Rutgers on Saturday.

Atkinson is one of four tailbacks the Fighting Irish have used in a rotation this season.
