CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - University of North Carolina tailback Romar Morris has been suspended for UNC’s next game against Pittsburgh on Nov. 15 for a violation of team rules, head coach Larry Fedora announced Monday.

A native of Salisbury, N.C., Morris has 44 carries for 162 yards and four touchdowns this season and 17 catches for 146 yards.

Morris started against Miami on Saturday and had 5 carries for 23 yards.
