LSU football player Tyrann Mathieu has been dismissed for violation of team policy.
"This is a very difficult day for our team," coach Les Miles said. "We lose a quality person, teammate and contributor to the program. However, with that being said, we have a standard that our players are held to and when that standard is not met, there are consequences.
Mathieu was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and the nation's top defensive player last year.
Head football coach Les Miles won't say which team and school rule Tyrann Mathieu broke.
Reports say it was drugs.
Mathieu has two years of eligibility remaining and could transfer to a different major college football school, but would have to sit out this season.
If he moved down a level, honey badger could play right away.
