Idaho State fotball coach Mike Kramer has suspended a player who complained Kramer pushed him to the ground during practice on Oct. 3. Idaho State officials confirmed Thursday that Kramer (pictured right) suspended wide receiver Derek Graves for violating team rules. Graves told ESPN he was suspended indefinitely for being late for practice. His attorney, Donald Jackson, said he considers the suspension to be retaliation by Kramer for Graves’ pursuit of criminal charges. He also said his client hasn’t been medically cleared to practice after suffering a neck injury when he was pushed. Idaho State suspended Kramer for last weekend’s Big Sky Conference game at Montana for violating the university’s conduct policy. – Associated Press
