Northwestern suspends RB Venric Mark first two games of the season

Northwestern suspends Senior RB Venric Mark for the first two games of the 2014 season. In a statement released by the school, Mark was suspended for the first two games against the Pac-12’s Cal and Mid-American’s Northern Illinois due to a violation of team policy.

Venric Mark shared,

“I made a mistake and am prepared to deal with the consequences of that.  There’s no one that holds me to a higher standard than the one I hold myself to, so nobody is more disappointed than I am. First and foremost, I feel like I let my teammates down, and that feels the worst. I’m grateful to have another season to compete with this team. My focus moving forward is on working as hard as I can in camp and supporting my teammates in practice and on gamedays so that we can achieve our goals this season.”
