JMU: Thorpe, Williams suspended indefinitely

JMU Director of Athletics Jeff Bourne announced today the indefinite suspension from competition of Justin Thorpe and Chase Williams from the football team for a violation of JMU Athletics policy.

Thorpe, a redshirt junior and the starting quarterback for Coach Micky Matthews, has thrown for 409 yards and three touchdowns for the 3-1 Dukes, who upset then-#4 William and Mary 20-14 in Williamsburg on Saturday.

Thorpe is also the team’s second-leading rusher with 163 yards.

Williams, a redshirt-junior reserve linebacker, has appeared in two games and recorded three tackles.

Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act there will be no further comment by JMU Athletics on the circumstances of these suspensions.
