Wake Forest suspends 2 football players for rules violations, adds transfer from Wisconsin


WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina — Wake Forest has suspended two football players from the team and added a graduate transfer.

Coach Dave Clawson on Tuesday said defensive back Thomas Brown will be suspended for one game and offensive lineman Ryan Anderson will miss five games. Both players violated undisclosed team rules, and Clawson says both players will practice during their suspensions.

Later in the day, the Demon Deacons announced the addition of defensive back Deven Gaulden, a graduate transfer from Wisconsin who can play immediately. Gaulden started five of the Badgers' 14 games last season.

Brown played in all 12 games last season with one start. He will miss the Sept. 3 opener against Elon. Anderson redshirted as a freshman last year and won't play until the Boston College game Oct. 10.
