Penn State’s Watkins suspended

Penn State center Mike Watkins did not play Saturday at Northwestern, as he was suspended for a violation of team rules, according to published reports.

It’s unclear if Watkins’ suspension was just for the one game, or if it will carry over to the Big Ten Tournament and beyond.

The senior has found himself in trouble numerous times during his career, but PSU coach Patrick Chambers has always stood by him. Chambers said after the game that Watkins will be back but did not disclose when.
