EMU suspends starting QB Brogan Roback

Special to The Detroit News
Brogan Roback, who played for Ron English as a redshirt freshman three years ago, said the atmosphere is significantly different under Chris Creighton.

Eastern Michigan starting quarterback Brogan Roback has been suspended from the team by coach Chris Creighton.

"With the privilege of being a member of the Eastern Michigan football program, there are expectations and standards to which we hold our student-athletes accountable," Creighton said in a release.

Roback, a redshirt junior, was suspended for a "violation of team and department rules." The length of the suspension has not been determined.

Roback played in all 12 games last season, completing 208-of-343 passes for 2,285 yards, with 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Eagles finished 1-11.

Roback missed several weeks in 2014 with a facial injury.

Eastern starts its season Sept. 2 at home against Mississippi Valley State.
