Miami safety Armstrong sues to get back on team
Senior suspended without explanation last month
Miami (Fla.) senior safety Ray-Ray Armstrong is in the process of filing an injunction in an attempt to be allowed to return to the Hurricanes' football team for the 2012 season.
He was suspended by coach Al Golden without explanation last month, less than a week after the NFL supplemental draft was held and only a few weeks before fall practice began at Miami.
Armstrong's attorney, Matt Morgan, told the Sun Sentinel that he plans to argue the university caused irreparable harm to Armstrong's NFL prospects with the timing of the suspension.
Armstrong is allowed to remain on scholarship but cannot practice or take part in team activities. Miami also cleared him to transfer without restriction.
Morgan said the school suspended Armstrong only to appease NCAA investigators inquiring about details of Armstrong posting pictures on Twitter of a dinner with a PR firm tied to other professional athletes, a possible violation for accepting impermissible benefits and contact with agency representatives.
