UW linebacker John Timu suspended for two weeks

Washington senior middle linebacker John Timu, a two-year captain, has been suspended for the first two weeks of spring practices, UW coach Chris Petersen announced after Tuesday’s first spring practice.

“Timu will not be here for the next two weeks. He’s been suspended; he’ll be back for the second part of spring ball,” Petersen said.

Petersen would not elaborate on the reason for Timu’s suspension. “(I) don’t comment on those things,” Petersen said.

Timu was not in attendance Tuesday.

Timu already is the third player suspended by Petersen in the new coach’s three months on the job. Quarterback Cyler Miles and receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely last month after they were alleged to have assaulted at least one Seahawks fan after the Super Bowl.

Senior running back Jesse Callier was also absent while dealing with “academic things, and we’ll see when that happens,” Petersen said.
