According to the report, Lambert was found in violation of of Big 12 eligibility rules. He will miss games against Missouri, Youngstown State, and BYU. He will return for the Big 12 opener against Kansas State.

Dana Holgorsen had announced a couple weeks ago that Lambert, Jovon Durante, Larry Jefferson, and Donte Thomas-Williams would be suspended for spring practice.

Per Mike Cassaza, the suspension was initially going to be longer.

Lambert, a 2014 Groza award finalist, made 21 of 28 field goal attempts last season. Mike Molina will likely replace Lambert.
