The following statement is from the Nebraska Athletics Department:
“Nebraska sophomore defensive back LeRoy Alexander has been suspended from competition for the 2014 football season. Alexander will remain on scholarship as a member of the Nebraska football program and will be allowed to practice with the team. Coach Pelini and the Nebraska Athletics Department will have no additional comment on this matter.”
The sophomore from Toledo, OH was expected to play an increased role for the Blackshirts in 2014. The 6-0, 200-pound Alexander earned a spot in the regular rotation at safety last season and showed the ability to be a quality performer for the next three seasons.
