NORMAN — Oklahoma senior running back Damien Williams and senior wide receiver Lacoltan Bester aren’t practicing with the team this week and will miss Saturday’s game at Kansas State under suspensions for violating team rules, sources close to the OU program confirmed to The Oklahoman.

The news was first reported by Oklahoma City’s KOCO-5.

Williams has rushed for 553 yards and seven touchdowns this season on a team-high 114 carries. He was the Sooners’ leading rusher a year ago, but has split carries this season with fellow seniors Brennan Clay and Roy Finch.

Williams was also suspended for the Sooners’ home win over Tulsa earlier this season.

Bester has recorded 20 catches for 279 yards and a touchdown this season.

Both Williams and Bester transferred to OU from junior colleges before the 2012 season began.
