LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville wide receiver/kick returner JaJuan Spillman has been suspended from the team indefinitely, coach Steve Kragthorpe said Monday.

Kragthorpe did not give a reason for the suspension. Spillman has played in all five games for the Cardinals (3-2) this season. He is fifth on the team in receptions with nine for 64 yards. He has also split time returning punts and kickoffs with Trent Guy. Spillman is averaging 22.2 yards per kick return and 8.8 yards per punt return.

Spillman, a sophomore, was arrested earlier this year following a car accident in the city. According to a police report, an officer responded to an accident near campus. The report said Spillman and an unnamed passenger admitted to the officer that they had smoked marijuana in the car. An officer found 9.3 grams of marijuana, police said.

The case is headed to trial on Nov. 27.

Kragthorpe said in August that the matter was being handled internally, and Spillman was not immediately disciplined.
