Washington quarterback Cyler Miles and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow remain suspended from the team, and coach Chris Petersen said Tuesday that he does not have a time frame for Miles’ potential return.

Miles, linked to an assault of a Seahawks fan after the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, was not charged in the case. Stringfellow was charged with three gross misdemeanors and is scheduled for arraignment in King County District Court on Wednesday.

Asked by a local TV reporter for another status update on the quarterback situation, Petersen said after practice that “it’s the same as it’s been from day one. We’ve got two quarterbacks out here that are competing their tail off, and there’s no change with Cyler right now.”

“Despite the fact,” Petersen was asked, “that he was not criminally charged?”

“Absolutely,” Petersen said.

“Is he still a part of this team?”

“Right now he’s not.”

“What about Mr. Stringfellow?”

“No change with him either.”

“Do you feel like you have to make some sort of statement with those two based on what happened?”

“We’re always going to do the right thing by our program. I said that from the start. So we’re handling it internally and doing the right thing always by our team, by the university and what’s right by these players.”

“When do you think you’ll make a decision?”

“Don’t have that timetable set.”

“Have you read the police report at all?”

“I’ve seen some of it.”

“Any response to what’s in that report?”

“I’ve got no response to it.”

Petersen was asked later if it’s fair to assume that either sophomore Jeff Lindquist or redshirt freshman Troy Williams would be the starting quarterback next season — or if Miles would have the opportunity to win the job in the fall.

“You know, we’ll answer all those questions here down the road for you guys,” Petersen said. “I don’t want to go off and just answer partial, this, that, when we really haven’t set everything with that. When I get that answer, we’ll answer that for you guys.”
