Ricky Marvray, Sean Sheller suspended
By Peter Yoon
LOS ANGELES -- UCLA Bruins leading receiver Ricky Marvray and offensive lineman Sean Sheller have been suspended for one game for a violation of team rules, the school announced Monday. They will sit out Saturday's Pac-10 game against Arizona.
Marvray, a redshirt freshman, has 14 catches for 141 yards and two of the Bruins' three receiving touchdowns this season. Sheller, a redshirt senior, has started every game at left tackle this season. Josh Smith will probably start in place of Marvray. Freshman Chris Ward is listed behind Sheller on the depth chart and will probably get the nod at left tackle.
This is the second consecutive game UCLA will play short-handed because of team rules violations. Smith and fullback Morrell Presley sat out last week's game against Oregon. Offensive lineman Mike Harris also missed the season opener against Kansas State because he was suspended for a violation of team rules.
In a press release, UCLA said it would have no further comment because of federal and state student privacy regulations. The announcement came after Neuheisel's weekly news conference and he was unavailable for comment afterward.
