Whitfield benched by Jackets **Updated

Denison star running back Denard Whitfield has been suspended from the Yellow Jackets football team. Whitfield will not be allowed to play for the rest of the season.

Whitfield was sidelined by coach Chad Rogers, who has confirmed that Whitfield will be out for the rest of the season. "We have a standard," Rogers said. "and when that standard is not met, there are consequences."

The Jackets are currently tied with Wylie East for first place in district 13-4A, with two regular season games left to play.

They face a Greenville team that has yet to win a game this season, including an 0-5 district mark.
