Washington suspends Pulu

Washington sophomore Andru Pulu, a potential starter next fall at defensive end, has been suspended indefinitely by coach Steve Sarkisian for an undisclosed violation of team rules, the school announced Tuesday.

Said the press release, "Neither the UW athletic department, nor the coach, will have any further comment on the matter."

Update: The Seattle Times reported: "Pulu was allegedly involved in an altercation at an off-campus party late Saturday night in which another student was injured."

Pulu, who backed up the departed Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, was one of 10 true freshman to see action for the Huskies last year. He recorded two tackles and half a sack and played on special teams.

The Huskies only lose three starters on defense but two of those are defensive ends. Other than Pulu, the returning ends from the 2009 depth chart are sophomore Talia Crichton and junior Kalani Aldrich.

Washington begins spring practice on March 30.
