LSU Reportedly Suspends Tharold Simon In Addition To Tyrann Mathieu, Spencer Ware

According to reports from multiple outlets local and national, the LSU Tigers will be without all-world cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and ace running back Spencer Ware for their game against the Auburn Tigers on Saturday, and possibly longer. Several reports had mentioned a potential third player, who's now been named by the Associated Press: productive defensive back Tharold Simon.

Simon is fourth on the team in tackles this year. He's also contributed a pick, 2.5 tackles for loss and eight pass breakups. Here's LSU beat writer Randy Rosetta with some thoughts on who might be asked to fill in throughout the secondary against Clint Moseley:

Ronnie Vinson could also get snaps at CB, and safeties Craig Loston and Sam Gibson might be asked to fill in on nickel.
