Three LSU players have been suspended for violating team rules for Saturday's SEC game with Auburn The suspended players are running back Spencer Ware, cornerbacks Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon.
There was no word whether the suspensions will extend beyond Saturday's game against Auburn. LSU has an off week and then plays Alabama on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa with the winner likely going to the BCS Championship Game.
Tigers coach Les Miles declined to discuss the suspensions“I certainly understand the interest surrounding what seems to be news. The problem with that news is that it’s internal discipline and an internal function of a team. I’m not inclined to be forthcoming with information. I’m not reactionary to meet the (needs) of the media and things external to this building. So, with that being said, there’s a process that I go through. When there’s information that I can share, I will. I can only tell you that I’m doing this in the best interest of our football team, our squad and to maintain a deportment and a procedure that I’m true to in a process that I’m very comfortable with. There’s no real information about any specific player that I’ll address at this point.
“I liked our practice. I think our preparation for Auburn is ongoing. I like the position that we’re in. We have a very capable football team. Our football team is looking forward to playing in Tiger Stadium in front of friends and family.”
There are reports that the players tested positive in drug tests.
The players were at Wednesday practice but didn't participate in the workout.
