TCU senior running back Waymon James has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, according to the school sports information department. Calls to coach Gary Patterson and athletic director Chris Del Conte were not immediately returned.

James led the team in rushing in 2011 but a knee injury in the second game of 2012 cut his junior season short. He’s the Frogs’ third-leading rusher with 242 yards and four touchdowns on 55 carries. He missed practice the Tuesday before TCU played Texas and was benched for the first quarter. He had four carries for a zero net gain against West Virginia.

As a sophomore in 2011, James led the team with 875 yards and six touchdowns. He missed the last 11 games of the 2012 season after a knee injury at Kansas.

Patterson talked highly of James in the summer and expected him to be a team leader on and off the field this season. James was one of four players representing the team at Big 12 Media Days in July.
