Arizona Wildcats center Kameron Mikel is being suspended one-game for his actions against an opponent during a loss to Washington.
Mikel threw a punch that caused a fall on Washington guard Zach Loyd and an elbow to Loyd’s knee, according to the school’s athletic department.
The Wildcats announced the suspension Tuesday.
Mikels’ second suspension for an incident of this nature will be reduced to one game.
Mikell is scheduled to return to action on Oct. 18.
Arizona has yet to make a decision on Mikels future with the Wildcats, according with a statement released by the school.
The school released a statement late Tuesday afternoon, explaining its decision to suspend Mikel: The Arizona Wildcats are disappointed to learn of a potential suspension for Kameron “Mike” Michael from the Arizona State football team.
Michael is an All-American who was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
He was drafted by the Cardinals in the fifth round (205th overall) of the 2017 draft.
Arizona will have to make the final decision on Michael’s future at that time.
This is an unfortunate incident for our program and our entire football program.
We are committed to providing the best student-athlete experience possible for our student-owners.
The Arizona State athletic department will continue to address this situation with Michael as appropriate and will be providing further updates.
