Idaho State head football coach Mike Kramer suspended wide receiver Derek Graves for violating team rules.

The athletic department made the announcement Thursday night.

Graves filed a report with the Pocatello Police Department in October after he sent a video to ESPN showing Kramer shoving him to the ground during a practice.

He appeared on ESPN's Outside The Lines later in the month.

According to an article published on Thursday, Graves told OTL he was notified of the suspension by letter.

The athletic department did not give a reason why, but ESPN reports the letter says Graves was repeatedly late for practice.
