Purdue's safety position will undergo some re-shuffling the first two games of the 2014 season.

Senior Taylor Richards will serve a two-game suspension following his alcohol-related arrest in December, coach Darrell Hazell said during an interview Thursday.

Also, safety Landon Feichter is expected to miss the first half of the Aug. 30 season opener against Western Michigan after being ejected for targeting in the last year's finale at Indiana.

Richards was arrested for operating while intoxicated and minor consumption. He was placed on unsupervised probation for 364 days in February, according to court records.

"He'll be out the first two games," Hazell said.

Richards, who has started 25 consecutive games, will be available when the Boilermakers face Notre Dame on Sept. 13 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Hazell hasn't decided who will take Richards' spot.
