Washington suspends two players, including Keith Price’s heir apparent

Yesterday evening, it was reported that two members of the Washington football program were being looked at in connection to an on-campus assault.

A day later, coincidentally, UW has announced a pair of suspensions.

The Huskies announced in a release Thursday that new head football coach Chris Petersen has suspended quarterback Cyler Miles and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow indefinitely for the standard violation of team rules.  Of course, no specific violation was given and the alleged assault that’s being probed was not mentioned.

Miles served as Keith Price‘s primary backup in 2013, playing in eight games and starting one.  With Price completing his collegiate career, Miles is looked upon as the successor at the position.

In 2013, Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards.  Like Miles, Stringfellow is a projected starter heading into spring practice.  Whether either will be available, however, remains to be seen.

According to media accounts, two UW football players were involved in an alleged assault Super Bowl Sunday.  The alleged victim told police that he was punched multiple times in the face by the assailants, whom he later identified by looking up their profiles on UW’s official website.

The police report redacted the names of the alleged perpetrators, and the university has yet to officially acknowledge any players were involved.  No charges have been filed nor any arrests made in connection to the incident.

    Hey, dude, I’ve got an idea. Let’s go punch some guy in the face. Nobody will notice us. Not like we are well known in the Seattle area or anything. What could go wrong.

    Not a good way to make an impression with a new coach.

    I wonder if (dun dun DUNNNN) alcohol and/or drugs was involved?

    That’s what those who got punched out deserved for rooting against the Seahawks #celebrate48

    I found a video of one of the guys before they went out on the town. It is Washington after all.

    Hey, MeatCarroll…reports are saying that the guy who got punched WAS a Seahawks fan. Miles and Stringfellow were allegedly wearing Broncos gear.

    MeatCarroll is a bandwagoning dweeb.

    He’s claimed to be a Seahawks, Bronco, 9er, Giants, Colts & Raiders fan.

    See below:

    I’m a Giants fan and am commenting to say Richard Sherman is Incredible.

    meatcarroll says: Dec 15, 2013 7:43 PM

    Carroll barely has a winning record? He’s like at least a dozen games over .500 with Seattle. Im a 9ers fan but admit Harbaugh inherited most of the studs here. Willis, Staley, Gore, VD, Crabs, Iupati, Boone, Bowman, Lee, etc. It was clear Singletary was holding us back, any average coach could have been 10-6+ with this team.

    I ain’t even mad at Sherman, been a Bronco fan since the 81 and he’s the best CB I’ve seen since Bailey and maybe Woodson.

    “probably going to win multiple Super Bowl rings before his career is over.”
    People said the same thing about Dan Marino. Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched. I’m a Colts fan and I’d like it if people would stop crowning Luck’s ass right away please. He did a good job climbing out of the huge hole that he was responsible for building, but not every team is going to roll over and die like the Chiefs.

    Tom Cable is a total badass and I credit him for molding their OL and ground game from a bunch of meek little softies after they let Hutch leave in 06 into unapologetic ass-kickers in 2011. I honestly wish my Raiders didn’t stupidly fire him and I bet he’s the successor whenever Pete Carroll retires.

    Hopefully the media doesn’t make it all about their Daddy! Prepare for some time to think about it.

  11. open1337 says: Feb 6, 2014 4:54 PM

    @meatcarroll….We’re you born into the Moon Bats lifestyle?

    ***************************
    That makes a bit more sense as Miles is from Denver originally, Stringfellow probably got caught up in the moment.

    It’s legal in WA now, can’t these guys just blaze and mellow out?

    @ ratsfoiled
    Love the homework. Busted him!!! Hilarious

    Oh no, they will be “forced” to miss a few practices!

  15. apehangers says: Feb 7, 2014 10:14 AM

    Hope they enjoy there junior college careers. They won’t be back on a Peterson coached team. I never can understand how players who have so much going for them do such stupid things. And people wanted to say Richard Sherman was a thug, his rant wasn’t even in the same ballpark. This can be categorized as thuggish behavior.

  16. tides1 says: Feb 7, 2014 11:30 AM

    This guy is “heir apparent” to Price. I can’t understand kids minds these days. Whether its PAC12, SEC, ACC, whomever. I know everybody has problems, but you’ve lived through the worst of it. Why ?

  17. joenash72 says: Feb 7, 2014 4:04 PM

    My guess is meatcarroll is actually an alias for Jim Harbaugh.

    @ratsfoiledagain;

    LMAO……absolutely priceless!

    @meatcarroll:
