Quarterback Cayman Shutter will remain on suspension from team activities until at least mid-July, but he will be allowed to participate with teammates in unsupervised workouts.
Head coach Norm Chow said the players are on their own for those workouts, which lead to the opening of training camp on Aug. 3.
Shutter was arrested on March 29 on suspicion of drunken driving. On April 3, he was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. Chow said not embarrassing the program “is a team rule.”
Chow is on the mainland through Sunday. Chow and Shutter are scheduled to meet on Monday. Chow said he likely will wait until after Shutter’s trial on July 20 before re-evaluating the punishment.
Shutter was UH’s No. 2 quarterback before his suspension.
