Washington suspends QB Cyler Miles for season opener against Hawaii

Hawaii will now be facing Washington's backup quarterback as Cyler Mles has been suspended for its season opening game.

The Hawaii Warriors season opening game against the Pac-12's Washington Huskies became just a little bit easier with the suspension of starting quarterback Cyler Mles. Washington is already replacing Keith Price who graduated last year and Miles was named the starter.

Miles appeared in eight games for the Washington last year, and finished the year passing for 418 yards, tossing four touchdowns and threw a pair of two interceptions. He also rushed for another 200 yards.

Back in February, along with then teammate Demore'ea Stringfellow were suspended after allegedly assaulting a man following the Super Bowl. Miles was suspended from the team for three months and missed all of spring football, and reinstated on May 14. This one-game suspension against Hawaii is an extension of that punishment.

The starting quarterback against Hawaii will be sophomore Jeff Lindquist or redshirt freshman Troy Williams will get the start, and neither have thrown a pass at the college level, and each split time in spring football as the backup.

This probably doesn't change the outcome of the game since Hawaii is still rebuilding under Norm Chow, but with Washington down a quarterback it could make this game a little bit more interesting.
