Les Miles: Failed Drug Test Reports 'Way Left Of Center'

LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles would not confirm Wednesday that the top-ranked LSU Tigers will suspend three players for this Saturday's game against No. 19 Auburn. He would not go into any specifics or confirm if cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, running back Spencer Ware, and defensive back Tharold Simon were indeed suspended, as had been widely reported.

Miles was extremely less-than-forthcoming with specifics and details:

"I'm not going to confirm anything...I'm not inclined to be forthcoming with information...When there's information to share - I will."

He did say, however, that reports of failed drug tests are "way left of center."

Ware and Mathieu reportedly failed a drug test and all three apparently tested positive for synthetic marijuana.

Mathieu has forced four fumbles, returning two of them for scores, and two interceptions while making 42 tackles. He has also recorded seven passes defended and five pass break-ups, while totaling 1 1/2 sacks.

Ware is LSU's leading rusher with 512 yards, and has accounted for seven touchdowns.

Simon has one interception and 29 tackles.
