JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) -Jacksonville State quarterback Ryan Perrilloux has been suspended for the Sept. 5 season opener at Georgia Tech for violating team rules during the spring.
The infraction was not the result of ``any legal circumstances and is strictly a violation of the strict guidelines he came here under,'' coach Jack Crowe said Friday in a statement.
Perrilloux transferred to Jacksonville State before last season. Once one of the nation's top recruits, he had been kicked off LSU's national championship team for a string of issues that included skipping classes, missing a team meeting and arriving late for conditioning workouts.
He passed for 2,318 yards and 19 touchdowns last season. Crowe said Perrilloux would return to the starting job against Florida State in the second game.
m for error. I do not think this is a reflection of his accountability since he has been here. Our fans do not need to assume more than it is, which is a team rule.
``Since the incident, Ryan has demonstrated his responsibility to this team and this university. I expect this to just be a one-time incident.''
Sophomore Marques Ivory is expected to start against the Yellow Jackets.
