LSU’s three suspended players are expected to be reinstated on Tuesday CBSSports.com has learned.

Defensive backs Tyrann Mathieu, Tharold Simon as well as running back Spencer Ware were suspended for Saturday’s Auburn game following reported failed drug tests. Asked following the game if the players would return for the Alabama game on Nov. 5, coach Les Miles said, “I probably know the answer to that but I don’t want to talk about it.”

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported last week that the players would be suspended only one game.  The three were not around the team for LSU’s 45-10 win over Auburn.

At the time of his suspension, Mathieu was considered a Heisman and All-American candidate. Ware was the team’s leading rusher. LSU will now have 11 days to prepare at full strength for Alabama. The game marks the between 1-2 teams in the AP poll in five years.

After watching the Auburn game, I don't know if it would make that much difference if they missed the Alabama game.  Alabama's defense is great, but I think LSU's offense will do better against bama's defense than bama will do against LSU's defense.  Bottom line is, bama has richardson, period.  LSU has ware,ford,hilliard,blue,jefferson.  Those are just the running backs.  I believe LSU has the overall edge.

Get caught doing drugs which are illegal, miss a game.

Party with a Millionaire who gives you cash, and buys you liquor and hookers, miss a game.

Have your dad offer to sell your services for a hundred thousand dollars, win a Heisman.

Sell your own jersey like AJ Green last year, miss 5 games.


This is what is wrong with the NCAA - the punishments are not logical and dont fit the crimes.

Um are you implying that the NFL is above reproach? MLB?  Both of which ignored widely known drug issues rampant through their league for decades....So not a valid argument.

Everyone knew they would be reinstated and they should. One game for weed, synthetic or real, is sufficient. Looking forward to the matchup.

Nothing too shallow for SEC teams, where suspension means nothing more than a day off.  Precisely why college football is a complete joke.

What a shocking development. Did anyone truly expect them to miss the 'Bama game?
