Report: Two Ole Miss players suspended

Ole Miss linebacker Clarence Jackson and defensive end Delvin Jones were suspended indefinitely from the team Friday following their arrests for public drunkenness, the Clarion Ledger reported.

According to Lafayette County jail records, the two were arrested by campus police Friday morning and charged with public drunkenness. They were booked at 2:30am local time, according to the report, and as of Friday afternoon had not been released.

Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt announced the suspensions in a statement issued by the university, citing an unspecified violation of team rules.

Jackson, a sophomore, is projected as a starter for the Rebels next season, though this is not his first run-in with the law. He was arrested in September after he was allegedly found in possession of a 46-inch flat-screen television that was missing from the university's math department.


That case remains open, according to the report.

Jones, a sophomore reserve, was suspended by Nutt for two games last November for missing classes.
