Pitt's senior defensive end Jabaal Sheard was arrested and charged with various offenses following an altercation late Saturday/early Sunday morning. He was then suspended indefinitely by Pitt.
"We are in the midst of gathering information on a weekend incident involving Jabaal Sheard," said Pitt athletic department spokesman E.J. Borghetti. "While we conduct our own investigation Jabal has been indefinitely suspended from the team."
Last season Sheard, who is from Hollywood Hills, Fla., started all 13 games for the Panthers and had 42 tackles, 10 1/2 for loss, five sacks and a team-high 12 quarterback hurries.
