NEW YORK | The University of Notre Dame said running back George Atkinson III and reserve cornerback Jalen Brown would not play in today's Pinstripe Bowl because of a violation of team rules.

Coach Brian Kelly announced the suspensions in a statement three hours before the 11 a.m. CST nationally televised (ESPN) kickoff against Rutgers.

Atkinson is one of four tailbacks the Fighting Irish have used in a rotation this season.
