Kenny Hill, who garnered Heisman Trophy consideration early this season, has been suspended two games for unspecified violations.

Texas A&M announced Saturday that sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill has been suspended two games for an unspecified violation of team rules and athletic department policies.

Hill, who started the Aggies’ first eight games this season, was replaced by true freshman Kyle Allen as the starter in the Aggies’ 21-16 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said after Saturday’s game that he informed Hill of the suspension Friday night.

“It’s always disappointing whenever it’s any player,” Sumlin said. “What we try to do is hold players to certain standards in this program and if you don’t meet those standards, there are consequences. Unfortunately, this is one of those times.”

Offensive coordinator Jake Spavital made it clear that Allen won the right to start with his play in practice over the last two weeks, not because of Hill’s suspension.

“Where we’re at right now, we’re looking for the best guys to put out there and to go out there and compete, and he definitely earned the starting position,” Spavital said.
