Western Kentucky Hilltoppers LB Andrew Jackson suspended indeifnitely


 

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers  senior linebacker Andrew Jackson has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. No reason was given by the team, other than Jackson could return in a few weeks when the team plays Army. He will not travel with the team to Atlanta this weekend where WKU will play Georgia State.

Prior to the year, Jackson was named the Sun Belt Conference Preseason Defensive Player of the Year. Through 8 games, he’s notched 59 tackles, 4.5 of which were for a loss.

Western Head coach Bobby Petrino has issued the following statement:

“Andrew did not meet the expectations we put forth every week for all of our players. There are certain conditions in place for him to meet before he returns to the team, and if he meets those conditions, he will be welcomed back for the Army game.”
He’s currently projected as a late Day 2 or 3 NFL Draft pick, but this will certainly hurt his stock.
