Georgia State’s Krysten Hammon suspended for Air Force game

Krysten Hammon, Georgia State’s leading rusher, has been suspended for Saturday’s game against Air Force for conduct detrimental to the team, according to coach Trent Miles.

Hammon’s status will be re-evaluated next week.

Hammon, a freshman, has rushed for 197 yards and two touchdowns in two games this year. He is averaging 5.2 yards per carry.

He is the third Panther to be suspended for this week’s game. Wide receiver Avery Sweeting and safety Bryan Williams will also sit it out for a violation of athletic department policy that occurred during the spring.

Look for Kyler Neal and Jonathan Jean-Bart, in what should be his first action this year, to pick up the bulk of what would have been Hammon’s carries on Saturday. Neal has rushed for 72 yards this year. Jean-Bart rushed for 269 yards and a touchdown last year. He missed the first two games because of an ankle injury.
