Head coach Norm Chow said quarterback Cayman Shutter has been suspended indefinitely and immediately from team activities in the aftermath of his recent arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.
Shutter will remain on scholarship and be allowed to attend classes. But he will not be permitted to practice, train with the team or attend team meetings while under suspension. Chow said the suspension could last anywhere from a day through the 2012 season.
The suspension is based on violation of team rules.
“He understands there are severe consequences that need to be paid,” Chow said. “We’ve preached that. We’ve talked that. He understand stands that. Yes, he does.”

Those NFL replica jerseys you’re wearing are now collectibles. Nike, which signed a five-year deal to become the supplier of NFL apparel, launched its initial line today. Your “Rodgers,” “Polamalu” and “Tebow” jerseys will be available at your local Champs this month.
But your Warrior Under Armour jerseys still are trendy. Under Armour’s deal with UH runs through June 30, 2016. It should be an easy transition for the new coaching staff. Utah, where Chow previously coached, was an Under Armour program.
