Cited for driving under the influence this past week, Oregon starting defensive lineman Isaac Remington has been suspended indefinitely by the football program.
However, Remington is still participating in practice with the team as far as anyone can tell. Remington left Autzen Stadium following Saturday’s practice in full uniform, but coach Chip Kelly wouldn’t shed any light on his status outside of confirming that he’s been suspended from playing.
“He’s going to come to practice and be here with his teammates,” Kelly said. “He’s not going to be home feeling sorry for himself. But he’s not going to participate.”
However, fellow defensive linemen Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner said Remington participated in team drills.
Remington’s suspension could be lifted “pending clarification of an incident that occurred Friday morning in Eugene” — when Remington was pulled over by police and cited. Remington’s blood alcohol content was reportedly .06 (the legal limit is .08). He faces a Nov. 1 court date.
A starter, Remington has 12 tackles on the season.
