As we reported yesterday afternoon, linebacker Thomas Brown and defensive back Ernest Suttles have been released from the Nebraska Cornhusker football team. The Omaha World Herald broke the news just minutes ago.
Early yesterday we reported that four Huskers were rumored to be off of the team, and then followed up as information came in the Brown and Suttles would be released with the possibility of less severe suspensions for linebacker David Santos and defensive lineman Jonathan Rose.
The University of Nebraska released an official statement today confirming an incident and the dismissal of Brown and Suttles.
“We are aware of an incident involving student-athletes which occurred off campus over the weekend. We are working with the University’s Dean of Students in gathering further details. We will continue to review the incident. Further, Head Football Coach Bo Pelini has announced that Ernest Suttles and Thomas Brown are no longer members of the football program.”
Thus far, the matter is being handled by the University and not police. Without a police report to reference, all we can go on is what the University of Nebraska is willing to report to the public.
Husker Corner stands by our sources who informed us of details with the events being at the home of David Santos, as well as possible involvement of Rose and other current members of the Husker team. In the statement released today, it does mention that the Dean of Students will continue to review the matter, so there is still the possibility of further suspensions to additional players.
