The Rochester Knighthawks released a statement on Friday afternoon that the team has suspended Tyler Burton, Jordan Hall, Travis Hill, Cody Jamieson and Sid Smith for breaking the prime directive of the Rochester Knighthawks’ team policy. The 5 players, who will not play in Saturday’s home game against the Washington Stealth, were involved in an incident at a Minnesota restaurant following last Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Swarm and the incident is under investigation. The team will acitvate Ryan Cousins, Craig Point, Jamie Batson and Joe Smith for Saturday’s  game. The moves are pending league approval.
