Miles suggests Rashard Robinson's season over

LSU sophomore cornerback Rashard Robinson has been indefinitely suspended. On Monday Les Miles updated Robinson's prospects to play the rest of this season and beyond.

Cornerback Rashard Robinson did not play in Saturday's Alabama game, under indefinite suspension, and he's more than likely done for the 2014 season, LSU coach Les Miles hinted Monday.

"It's an indefinite suspension. I don't expect you would see him in the short term at all," Miles said at his weekly press luncheon. "I'm beyond that as well [in terms of Robinson returning next season]. There's a responsibility that he has to this team that has been foregone. At this point I'm looking forward to taking the field against the next team."

Robinson, a sophomore from Pompano Beach, Fla., has run afoul of team rules and regulations for the second time this campaign. The 6-foot-3 corner was also suspended for the season-opening win over Wisconsin in Houston's NRG Stadium.

According to Miles, Robinson did not practice with the team last week and he won't be in practice this week either, leading up to the Tigers' game at Arkansas Saturday night.

For the season Robinson, typically a starter opposite Tre'Davious White, has registered 17 tackles, one for loss, and a pass break-up in eight games. In his true freshman season of 2013, Robinson arrived on campus the week of the opener, dealing with a memorable NCAA Clearinghouse situation, only to emerge as a starter late in the fall on his way to making 16 tackles, one interception and three pass break-ups in 12 games.

In Robinson's stead junior Jalen Collins made the start against the Crimson Tide and is expected to resume that role in Fayetteville.
