Miami Suspends Second-Leading Receiver ‘Indefinitely’
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBSMiami) – LB Eddie Johnson, WR Rashawn Scott, LB Denzel Perryman and S Deon Bush have one thing in common: they’re not in Charlottesville for the UVA vs. Miami game.
Eddie “didn’t do what he needed to do to make the trip,” according to UM director of communications Chris Yandle. That explanation came when CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald asked if Eddie was suspended.
The paper reports Rashawn Scott, however, has been suspended — and indefinitely.
Here’s the email announcing Scott’s suspension:
“University of Miami sophomore receiver Rashawn Scott has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.”
The sophomore ranks second on the team with 512 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 35 catches.
“The ACC Coastal Division-leading Miami Hurricanes (5-4, 4-2 ACC) play at Virginia (3-6, 1-4 ACC) at noon ET Saturday on ABC.”
UM coach Al Golden said last week that Bush had stingers. Perryman has an injured right ankle.
OK, so now the Canes are missing their second-leading tackler in Johnson, their third-leading tackler in Perryman and a starting safety in Bush.
On offense, Rashawn Scott can make the big play. I think that’s a big loss.
Kacy Rodgers is starting in place of Bush.
Gionni Paul is starting for Perryman.
Thurston Armbrister is starting in place of Johnson.
