East Carolina suspends WR Worthy for 2 games

Greenville, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - East Carolina suspended senior wide receiver Cam Worthy for two games on Saturday as a result of a school student code of conduct violation.

The suspension resulted from a late summer verbal disagreement between Worthy and another male student on campus.

"Since I arrived at ECU we have always had a strong disciplinary response to any actions by our players," ECU head coach Ruffin McNeill said. "Cam is an outstanding young man with an exemplary record as a student and representative of our football program. His family has been involved and fully supportive throughout this process as has our entire football family."

Worthy leads the Pirates with 302 receiving yards through the first three games this season.
