LEXINGTON, Kentucky (AP) -- Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has announced the suspensions of senior offensive tackle Darrian Miller and junior receiver Rashad Cunningham for Saturday's season opener against Tennessee-Martin.

Miller, a 6-foot-5, 292-pounder who had started the past 24 games for the Wildcats, was disciplined for an unspecified violation of team rules. Said Stoops during Monday's news conference that the violation "happened some time ago and we've addressed the situation. He'll be back in good standing after one game."

Stoops also said that Cunningham will sit but the coach did not say what violation the receiver committed.

The coach says that senior wide receiver Demarco Robinson has "paid his price" and will play after being suspended for the final two games of last season for an unspecified violation.
