Often, the reasons behind suspension for "violation of team rules" is never publicly confirmed, but there's little doubt that today's announcement concerning Jorge Wright's indefinite penalty is an arrest that occurred last Thursday night.

Jorge Wright, who had moved into strong contention for the starting nose tackle job during West Virginia's spring football practices, was suspended indefinitely on Tuesday. In a brief, one-sentence statement, WVU head coach Bill Stewart announced that the redshirt junior has been suspended from the squad.

Although no further comment was forthcoming from West Virginia officials, his suspension comes after from a traffic stop and arrest of Wright last week. A police report cited Wright for possession of less than 15 grams of marijuana and an unlicensed gun in his vehicle.

Wright played in Friday's Gold-Blue game, recording three tackles.
