It's officially the college football offseason and the Nevada Wolf Pack got some disheartening news on Sunday, January 19th.

As first reported by the RGJ, Nevada running back Chris Solomon was arrested for first-degree battery, a misdemeanor. Following his arrest, coach Brian Polian announced that Solomon has been suspended from all team activities.

Solomon, a redshirt freshman last year, showed lots of potential in the backfield as primarily a backup to Kendall Brock and Don Jackson. The 6' 1" 195 pound sophomore-to-be had his best game last year against eventual national champion Florida State, rushing for 108 yards on 26 attempts. On the season, Solomon finished with 282 yards on 89 carries with one touchdown.

Looking forward to next season, if/when he is able to return, Solomon will likely still be a backup to returnees Kendall Brock and Don Jackson.
