2 Syracuse players suspended due to failed drug tests


After Saturday’s loss to Clemson, the school announced that freshman defensive ends Qaadir Sheppard  and Amir Ealey have been indefinitely suspended from the team. While no specific reason was given for the suspensions, the Syracuse Post-Standard, citing unnamed sources, is reporting that the two each failed two drug tests.

Based on the athletic department’s new drug policy language, Sheppard and Ealey will be suspended for the last two games of this season in addition to the first four of 2016. The failed tests could also lead to the players being forced to miss spring practice, summer camp and other team activities.

Sheppard had played in nine games this season, Ealey in seven for the 3-7 Orange.
