New Washington coach Chris Petersen has suspended quarterback Cyler Miles and wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow indefinitely for violating team rules, the school announced Thursday.

Seattle television station KIRO 7 reported Wednesday that Stringfellow and another unidentified player were involved in an altercation following the Seattle Seahawks' Super Bowl victory. According to the police report, obtained by KIRO 7, two Washington players assaulted a man with "multiple punches" to his "left eye, chin and cheek."

The KIRO 7 report does not specifically name Miles.

Miles, a backup last season, appeared in eight games and started two when Keith Price was injured. He's expected to compete for Washington's starting job next season.

Stringfellow recorded stats in seven games last year -- including an 8-catch, 147-yard performance with a touchdown against UCLA.

The release from the school did not include specifics about what team rules were violated and said the school would have no further comment.

Petersen is in his first season with the Huskies after replacing Steve Sarkisian, who accepted the head coaching position at USC.
