It looks like last year’s Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year will have a difficult time vying for a  repeat of the award this fall.Blog Photo - TCU Football: Horned Frogs suspend DE Devonte Fields

TCU has suspended defensive end Devonte Fields for the first two games of the season for violation of university and team policy, reports David Ubben of ESPN.

Fields will miss the season opener against LSU at Cowboys Stadium and the Horned Frogs' home opener against Southeastern Louisiana.

This isn’t good news for a team that returns 15 starters to the field. TCU is expected to have a bounce back year from its 7-6 campaign in 2012 with much of its young talent coming back.

Fields is supposed to be a huge contributor to these high expectations, as he was a quarterback’s nightmare with 18.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks as a true freshman last season.

His impact off the edge will be missed big-time against an LSU offense that is sure to be much improved with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on the sidelines.
