STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -Stanford sophomore wide receiver Richard Sherman has been suspended for the Cardinal's game at Washington State on Saturday because of poor sportsmanship on the sidelines during a loss to Washington.
``It was something the coaching staff agreed to,'' Cardinal coach Jim Harbaugh said on Tuesday. ``He will not be allowed to participate in any football activities this week.''
Sherman was called for a personal foul during last Saturday's 27-9 home loss to the Huskies. Soon after, television cameras caught Sherman on the sidelines pointing and screaming, apparently at teammates, while special teams coach C.J. Durkin tried to quell the situation.
Sherman leads Stanford with 38 receptions for 646 yards and four touchdowns.
Harbaugh also announced at his weekly press conference that sophomore running back Toby Gerhart will redshirt the season after injuring his knee against San Jose State.
Gerhart, who also plays baseball, has a tear in his PCL and was not available to play. He gained 140 yards in his only game of the season.
