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.
