SEC Suspends South Carolina’s D.J. Swearinger – VIDEO
For the second consecutive week, the Southeastern Conference has suspended a player for a "flagrant and dangerous act".
A week ago, the SEC suspended freshman defensive back Trae Elston for one game for what they said was an illegal hit, and now one week later, the league has handed out a suspension against South Carolina defensive back D.J. Swearinger.
The one-game suspension was the result of this hit that Swearinger put on a UAB player in their game last Saturday.
The penalty, and the suspension was because of the helmet-to-helmet hit.
