Washington QB Cyler Miles and WR Damore'ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely by coach Chris Petersen on Thursday.
Washington said that the suspension was for a violation of team rules. According to KIROTV.com in Seattle, the two are suspected in an attack on Sunday following the Super Bowl.
According to police reports obtained by KIRO 7, a white car pulled up behind a man as he walked along NE 55th St. after the Seahawks won Sunday night.
Two people, including one the victim identified as Stringfellow, hopped out of the car and asked him if he was a Seahawks fan.
Then they began hit him with "multiple punches" to his "left eye, chin, and cheek" before they hopped back in the car and took off, according to the report.
Afterwards, the man looked the players up on the Washington football roster.
The station also says that according to police reports, the same two players were also involved in a separate incident at a UW bonfire to celebrate the Seahawks' win over the Denver Broncos. A police spokesperson declined to identify to the station the two players being investigated.
Miles, a freshman in 2013, has been considered the leading candidate to start in 2014. He finished Washington's Fight Hunger Bowl win over BYU after Keith Price left the game with an injury. In three games in 2013, Miles was 37-61 passing for 418 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.
Stringfellow, also a freshman last season, had 20 catches for 259 yards and a touchdown.
