Miami Checking If Armstrong Broke Rules

MIAMI (AP) — 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 has not practiced this week, which essentially made him ineligible to be on the team’s travel roster.

Armstrong had dinner at a Miami Beach restaurant Sunday night with Arielle Washington, who is the owner and president of a firm called Double Coverage PR. Washington met with Miami compliance officials Tuesday.

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.
