BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux was suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules, leaving his status unclear for the start of spring practice Feb. 29.
Coach Les Miles did not elaborate on the violation in his statement Monday or how the suspension would affect Perrilloux's future with the national champions.
Perrilloux had been widely considered the favorite to succeed Matt Flynn as starting quarterback after leading LSU to two victories as a starter, including the Southeastern Conference championship game, when Flynn was injured in the 2007 season.
Perrilloux was considered the top high school quarterback prospect in the country when then-LSU coach Nick Saban persuaded him to join the Tigers. He appeared to be fulfilling his promise in 2007 after redshirting in 2005 and playing sparingly as a third-stringer in 2006.
In May 2007, Perrilloux was suspended from the team indefinitely after he was cited for trying to illegally get on a riverboat casino in Baton Rouge by using his older brother's driver's license. He was reinstated in August. In October, the week before the Alabama game, he was barred from practice for his role in a nightclub brawl.
