NC State Suspends RB Shadrach Thornton for 2 Games

ESPN’s David Hale reported Thursday afternoon that NC State senior running back Shadrach Thornton has been suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season for violation of team rules.

Thornton (6-foot-1, 218 lbs.), who has 2,369 yards and 16 touchdowns throughout his career, led the team in carries (164), yards (907), and scores (9) in 2014. According to OurLads.com, he was the projected starting running back for Week 1.

Luckily for NC State, the Wolfpack open against Troy before hosting FCS Eastern Kentucky in Week 2 and shouldn’t have to worry about a lack of production from the backfield.
