Mike London indefinitely suspends three Virginia football players
Updated at 2:46 p.m.
Virginia Coach Mike London suspended three Cavaliers football players Tuesday for conduct detrimental to the team. Two of the suspended players -- junior linebacker Ausar Walcott and junior cornerback Devin Wallace -- were starters on last season's squad. The third player was junior center Mike Price.
"The players know the expectations I have for them as student-athletes both on and off the field, and as representatives of both the football program and the University," London said in a statement. "I am disappointed in the conduct of these individuals and the fact they chose not to represent themselves in the appropriate manner. They will not participate in any team activities while suspended, but they will continue to attend all study halls and to meet their academic requirements."
Through a team spokesman, London declined a request to be interviewed to determine more precisely what led to the suspensions, as well as what the players must do to have their suspensions lifted.
Walcott started 11 of 12 games and finished third on the team in tackles (56). Wallace started seven games and played a larger role than initially expected due to Ras-I Dowling's persistent injuries. Price, who backed up starter Anthony Mihota, played in two games.
