Tyrann Mathieu, Spencer Ware Suspensions Could End Before Alabama Game, According To Report

Though LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles has yet to confirm whether stars Tyrann Mathieu and Spencer Ware, along with contributor Tharold Simon, have been suspended over synthetic marijuana use, reports flag the suspensions with the dreaded indefinitely tag. Mark Schlabach reports the players have certain "requirements" to meet in order to get back on the field.

And meet them they shall, or at least two of the three will, since LSU's next game after their home stand against the Auburn Tigers is a trip to play the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide. A bye week separates the two games, so surely lessons can be learned in all that time off.

Of course, LSU fans had better hope this was the first drug-related suspension for the three. As CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy shares, a second failed test would mean an automatic, school-mandated two-game suspension. But wouldn't we have known about the hypothetical first failed test? Nope -- LSU athletic programs can handle one-time whoopsies on their own without suspensions.
