The University of Miami’s quarterback quandary just became murkier.

Redshirt freshman Kevin Olsen has been suspended at least one game after failing a drug test, according to multiple reports. Olsen, the younger brother of former UM star and current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, was vying for the starting QB spot after projected starter Ryan Williams tore his anterior cruciate ligament in April.

Kevin Olsen previously was suspended for the Russell Athletic Bowl in December for violating team policy. With Olsen out at least one game, graduate transfer student Jake Heaps and true freshman Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier will compete for the starting spot.

The Hurricanes play Louisville in their season opener Sept. 1.
