LSU levied an indefinite suspension against sophomore LB Tyler Taylor for his May arrest in relation to a suspected burglary.
This has been a long-time coming, as the actual precipitating incident -- an alleged pawn shop robbery in which Taylor may have served as getaway driver -- occurred all the way back on Jan. 8. It would be another five months before the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder was arrested and another three months before his suspension. LSU is saying that they were not even aware of the arrest until Wednesday, with Taylor practicing up until that point. How long it might take this case to resolve remains to be seen. No charges have been filed to date, but if they are eventually filed, we could be talking about potential felony raps. The former four-star recruit appeared in all 13 games as a true freshman last year while making five starts in that space. We'll have a better idea of how the program will adjust to Taylor's absence once the Tigers have a few post-suspension practices under their belts and begin to sort through their other linebacking options.
