Report: Washington QB Cyler Miles suspended for season opener

Thursday July 24th, 2014

Washington sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles is suspended for the team's Aug. 30 season opener at Hawaii, according to Adam Jude of The Seattle Times.

Miles and sophomore wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely in February after being linked to an assault of two Seahawks fans after the Super Bowl. Miles was not charged and was reinstated in May. Stringfellow, who pleaded guilty to three assault charges, has since transferred. 

In eight games last season, Miles completed 37 passes for 418 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 200 yards on 23 carries in relief of injured starter Keith Price. A former four-star recruit out of Mullen (Colo.) High School, Miles is considered the front-runner to earn Washington's starting quarterback job.

The Huskies finished 9-4 in 2013 and hired former Boise State head coach Chris Petersen to replace Steve Sarkisian, who left for USC.
