Reports: Miami DE Al-Quadin Muhammad suspended for season

Friday September 12th, 2014

Miami defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad has been suspended for the season and is no longer enrolled at Miami, according to reports.

The Miami Herald reported that Muhammad, who will have the option of returning to school next semester, was involved in an altercation that resulted in his roommate suffering a broken nose. The altercation reportedly happened several months ago.

Muhammad was held out the first two games of the season -- but was allowed to practice -- while Miami evaluated whether he violated the school's code of conduct, according to the Associated Press. If Muhammad elects to return to Miami, he would not lose a year of eligibility. If he transfers to another school, Muhammad would have to sit out the rest of this season in compliance with NCAA transfer rules.

Muhammad recorded eight tackles and two sacks in 13 games as a freshman last season. The Don Bosco (N.J.) Prep product was rated the No. 3 weakside defensive end in the class of 2013 by the recruiting website

Miami (1-1) hosts Arkansas State on Saturday.
