The University of Washington announced Thursday that two football players — quarterback Cyler Miles and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow — have been suspended indefinitely by head coach Chris Petersen.
While no specific information was provided about what Miles and Stringfellow did to earn their suspensions — the generic “a violation of team rules” was used as the justification — it’s hard not to draw a line between the suspensions of Miles and Stringfellow and the report that came out late Wednesday night saying two football players are being investigated for an attack that occurred on Sunday evening.
Here’s the report as explained by KIRO 7:
According to police reports obtained by KIRO 7, a white car pulled up behind a man as he walked along NE 55th St. after the Seahawks won Sunday night.
Two people, including one the victim identified as Stringfellow, hopped out of the car and asked him if he was a Seahawks fan before pushing him against some bushes.
Then they began hit him with “multiple punches” to his “left eye, chin, and cheek” before the hopped back in the car and took off, according to the report.
The victim searched the UW football team roster online and found the two players he says attacked him.
