Marshall_Henderson_2013Ole Miss star Marshall Henderson will not be allowed to play in the Rebels’ exhibition game, regular-season opener or first two SEC games this season, the school announced Tuesday.

The development is punishment for various offseason issues.

Henderson was suspended in July after reportedly failing multiple drug tests.

“I want to thank coach [Andy] Kennedy, [athletic director] Ross Bjork and the university for giving me an opportunity to rejoin the team,” Henderson said in a statement. “This has been a difficult time for me, and I appreciate this chance. My teammates and I are looking forward to defending our SEC Championship.”
