UCLA football: Ricky Marvray, Sean Sheller suspended for Arizona game

October 25, 2010 |  5:03 pm


Wide receiver Ricky Marvray and offensive tackle Sean Sheller have been suspended for one game by the UCLA football team for violating team rules. The two will not play against Arizona on Saturday.

The action brings to four the number of UCLA starters suspended in the last two weeks. F-back Morrell Presley and kick returner/wide receiver Josh Smith missed the Oregon game last Thursday.

Multiple sources in the program said that the four tested positive in drug screening. The sources were given anonymity as they were not authorized to speak on the matter.

Under UCLA policy, players are suspended for one game after a third positive drug test.
