Wake Forest suspends top returning RB Dominique Gibson

Wake Forest’s running game took a hit Thursday when the school announced that running back Dominique Gibson had been indefinitely suspended from the team.

An undisclosed violation of team rules was the only reason given for the discipline.

Gibson was the team’s top returning rusher with 138 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He and senior Orville Reynolds, who returned to running back after spending the past two seasons as a flanker, were in line to either battle for the starting role or become a two-back tandem as Wake Forest tried to resuscitate one of the nation’s more anemic offenses.

Wake Forest ranked 118th nationally in total offense last season and 116th in rushing offense with just 94.1 yards per game. The offense had just two games with more than 124 yards rushing and those games came against Presbyterian and Army. Of the Demon Deacons’ 24 offensive touchdown, 11 came on the ground.
