According to this report from CBS Sports.com Ohio State linebacker Dorian Bell has been suspended for the 2011 season for "a third violation of the same team rule".

Bell's suspension won't be quite as damaging as those to Tressel or Terrelle Pryor -- he has nine career total tackles -- but it's not exactly like losing the second-string waterboy, either. Bell had enjoyed a strong spring, putting himself into the mix to potentially start at one outside linebacker position and all-but sealing himself a spot in the regular playing rotation. A former five-star recruit out of Monroeville (Pa.), Bell seemed like a strong candidate to have a breakout season.

After Brian Rolle and Ross Homan were both drafted by the NFL on Saturday, this will put a dent in LB depth for the Buckeyes heading into next season.
