Nebraska safety LeRoy Alexander is suspended from play for the 2014-2015 season.
The following statement is from the Nebraska Athletics Department:
“Nebraska sophomore defensive back LeRoy Alexander has been suspended from competition for the 2014 football season. Alexander will remain on scholarship as a member of the Nebraska football program and will be allowed to practice with the team. Coach Pelini and the Nebraska Athletics Department will have no additional comment on this matter.”
The sophomore played in 13 games last year at safety and special teams, finishing with 34 tackles and one interception.
He was considered a favorite to be a starter next to Corey Cooper this fall after recording 27 of his tackles over the final six games last season.
