WVU WR Carswell Suspended Indefinitely

MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia wide receiver Ronald Carswell was sent home from the team's road trip to Fort Worth last weekend before taking on TCU and now his future with the Mountaineers is in doubt. 

On Tuesday, head football coach Dana Holgorsen said that the sophomore receiver is suspended indefinitely, while adding that his status will be revisited at the end of the season. 

Carswell, in his first season with the Mountaineers after transferring from junior college, originally signed with Alabama out of high school. Through WVU's first eight games, he had become the top deep threat, averaging over 20 yards per reception while racking up 413 yards on 20 catches. 

He had two touchdown receptions on the season, including a 69-yard hookup with Paul Millard in the first game of the year. In his last game with the team, at Kansas State, he and Clint Trickett connected on a 50-yard bomb. 

Holgorsen did not expand on the exact nature of the rules violation that led to Carswell returning early from Texas and no longer being with the team.
