Washington QB Miles suspended for opener
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Washington quarterback Cyler Miles has been suspended for the team’s season opener against Hawaii, according to a school spokesman.
Jaime Valdez/USA TODAY SportsWashington has suspended quarterback Cyler Miles (10) for its season opener against Hawaii.
Miles’ suspension stems from his role in a fight following the Super Bowl, which also led to a suspension that kept him out for the entirety of spring practice. He was reinstated to the team on May 14.
The redshirt sophomore is widely expected to replace Keith Price as the Huskies’ starting quarterback, but coach Chris Petersen has not officially named a starter.
Former Washington receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assaults and one count of malicious mischief as a result of the incident and has since left the team. Miles was never charged.
With Miles out, Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams are the top candidates to start against Hawaii on Aug. 30.
