Huskies QB and Reciever Suspended
New Washington Husky football coach Chris Petersen has suspended two players following the violation of team rules. The suspensions were announced Thursday. The school said Petersen would have no further comment on the matter and did not specify what caused the violation. The two suspended players are Cyler Miles, the Huskies projected starting quarterback and Damore’ea Stringfellow, projected to be a starting wide-reciever.
The suspension stem from alleged incidents following the Seahawks Super Bowl win.
According to police reports the two were in a car that pulled up behind a man as he walked along a Seattle street after the Seahawks won Sunday night. Two people, including one the victim identified as Stringfellow, hopped out of the car and asked him if he was a Seahawks fan.
KIRO 7 TV in Seattle says the two men then began to hit him with "multiple punches" to his "left eye, chin, and cheek" before they hopped back in the car and took off, according to the report.
The victim searched the UW football team roster online and found the two players he said attacked him.
Miles is the presumptive starting quarterback for the Huskies heading into next season. He was the backup to Keith Price during the 2013 season and started one game late in the season at Oregon State. Stringfellow was also expected to be a starter going into next season after coming on late in the season. Stringfellow had eight catches for 147 yards and a touchdown at UCLA.
