TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The nation's returning leading rusher, Ka'Deem Carey, will not be playing in The University of Arizona's season opener against Northern Arizona University Friday night, according to a source.

It was not immediately disclosed why the Arizona Junior runningback is not playing tonight, but coach Rich Rodriguez confirmed that it is due to a violation of team policy.

UA Public Relations informed the media this is likely the result of his off-season issues regarding misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct charges, which were both dropped.

No word yet on how long the suspension will last.
