Oklahoma defensive tackle Stacy McGee has been suspended indefinitely for what coach Bob Stoops called a violation of university rules. Stoops said Friday after practice that defensive end David King will move inside to make up for the loss of McGee, who has started 17 games over the past three seasons. McGee is the fifth Oklahoma player to be suspended during this offseason. Receiver Kameel Jackson was eventually dismissed from the team, while defensive back Quentin Hayes and receivers Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks have been reinstated to practice but won't be allowed to play in games. The Sooners' season opener is Sept. 1 at UTEP.
