Dave Wannstedt announced today that redshirt freshman running back Jason Douglas is suspended from the team indefinitely, for disciplinary reasons.
Douglas appeared in both games this season, primarily as a kick returner. He led Pitt with three returns for 51 yards (17.0 avg), against Utah. On Saturday, he did not field any kickoff returns, even though he did play.
He did see his first action at running back on Saturday, carrying the ball three times for eight yards in a reserve role in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s win.
Douglas is the second Pitt player to be suspended indefinitely from team activities, in the last two months. Starting defensive end Jabaal Sheard was suspended from team activities on July 19, following an off-the-field altercation. He was reinstated to the team two and a half weeks later, on August 4, in time for the start of training camp.
