Tre'Von Armstead

Baylor tight end Tre'Von Armstead (41)

Baylor junior tight end Tre’Von Armstead was dismissed from the football program for an unspecified team rules violation, coach Art Briles announced Friday.

Armstead played in 27 games for the Bears in his career, making five receptions for 62 yards and one touchdown.

Armstead, a preseason all-Big 12 tight end, played in Baylor’s first game this season against SMU but was held out of the second game against Lamar.

With Armstead gone, seniors LaQuan McGowan and Gus Penning will get the bulk of the playing time at tight end.

A graduate of Port Arthur Memorial High School, Armstead played offensive line and tight end as a redshirt freshman in 2013 before starting six games at tight end last season.

Armstead’s dismissal is the latest in a string of issues concerning the Baylor football team in the last two weeks.

Third-team All-America defensive end Shawn Oakman and preseason all-Big 12 safety Orion Stewart were suspended from the opener against SMU for violations of team rules.

Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles and receivers coach Tate Wallis were suspended from the Lamar game for a recruiting violation.
