Sources: Michael Dyer suspended for Chick-fil-A Bowl

... but I get up again? You ain't never gonna keep me down?

Michael Dyer’s meteoric rise up Auburn’s all-time rushing chart has come to a halt—at least for one game.

Citing unnamed sources, AuburnUndercover.com and AuburnSports.com are reporting that Dyer has been suspended for the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Virginia. The reason? “Not clear at this time.”

But the suspension does little to quell internet rumors about Dyer’s “attitude” that recycled throughout the 2011 season every week he received fewer carries than might have been expected from a sophomore who, you know, broke Bo Jackson’s freshman rushing record.

Dyer was called upon only 13 times in the biggest game of the year. Auburn’s rushing leader netted 48 yards in a frustrating Iron Bowl. Still, he moved a bit closer to Stacy Danley; No. 5 is currently 10th among Auburn’s all-time rushing leaders with 2,335 yards.

UPDATE: Dyer’s suspension is now being described as “indefinite” and has been officially confirmed by Auburn’s Athletic Department.
