By  | 

DALLAS (AP) -- Alabama reserve defensive back Tony Brown is suspended for the Cotton Bowl against Michigan State after a violation of team rules.

Coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by the school Wednesday that an internal decision was made to send Brown home.

The Crimson Tide face the Spartans on Thursday night in the College Football Playoff semifinals.

Brown, a sophomore, is listed on the depth chart as a backup at both cornerback and the STAR position, a combo safety and cornerback position. Brown played 13 games this season and made 16 tackles with two passes broken up.
