Breaking News: LSU Suspends Mathieu, Ware and Simon

As the Tigers turn! Just when LSU was getting over the whole Jordan Jefferson scandal, another issue has now arisen.

The Associated Press and ESPN are reporting that LSU has suspended star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, along with defensive back Therold Simon and running back Spencer Ware for this Saturday’s home game against Auburn.

It is unknown if the suspensions will last further than this Saturday’s game — and right now, the school isn’t releasing WHY the three are benched.

Here are the details:

The person told The Associated Press about the suspensions on condition of anonymity on Wednesday because they have not been announced. LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette declined to confirm any punishment for the three players, saying only that they’re involved in an internal matter that coach Les Miles “will handle accordingly.”

Mathieu has forced four fumbles, recovering three and returning two for scores. He also has two interceptions and 42 tackles including 1½ sacks.

Ware is the leading rusher for the unbeaten Tigers with 512 yards and six touchdowns.
