Cornell Football Player Suspended for September 29 Game at Bucknell

PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League announced today that it has suspended Cornell football freshman defensive back Jarrod Watson-Lewis for the Big Red's Sept. 29 game at Bucknell for a targeted hit that resulted in a personal foul during the Sept. 22 Yale-Cornell game. 

Rule 9, Section 6, Article 2 of the 2011 & 2012 NCAA Football Rules and Interpretations Manual states when a foul is called for initiating contact/targeting a player "that does not result in a player disqualification, there shall automatically be a video review by the conference for possible additional sanctions before the next scheduled game."

Watson-Lewis is eligible to return to game action for Cornell's Oct. 6 game at Harvard.
