SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Syracuse receiver Marcus Sales is suspended indefinitely after he was arrested for drug possession last week.
Syracuse coach Doug Marrone says once Sales case goes through the judicial system, he will be able to determine the players future with the team.
Sales and his brother, Michael Sales Jr., were pulled over July 29 for running a red light in Syracuse. Police found an open container of alcohol, several bags of marijuana and a bag of painkilling pills.
The brothers appeared in court Thursday, but will remain free while their charges are pending.
Marrone says running back Prince-Tyson Gulley, who is recovering from being stabbed in his back and arms during a brawl at an on-campus party, will not be able to practice for at least a week.
