Miami safety Ray-Ray Armstrong will not play Saturday against Florida State because school officials are investigating if he committed an NCAA violation by having dinner with someone who owns a public relations firm.

Armstrong was suspended for the first four games of Miami's season because a separate investigation found he broke NCAA rules by accepting gifts from a former Miami booster.
