Nebraska linebacker Cody Glenn, the Redskins’ fifth-round pick in the 2009 NFL draft, told Washington reporters on Sunday that he had been suspended for two games for scalping tickets.
However, that comment surprised athletic department officials in Lincoln.
“I don’t think it’s the case,” assistant athletic director Josh White told The Lincoln Journal-Star. “I think Cody was trying to represent himself better.”
Fellow assistant AD Gary Bargen told the newspaper that Nebraska has never been informed of any NCAA violations regarding Glenn.
Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, a longtime friend of Redskins executive vice president Vinny Cerrato, has never divulged the reason for his suspension of Glenn for the final three games of last season other than the vague “violation of team rules.”
Reached today, Cerrato said that the Redskins stand by what Glenn said and that they have no issues with his character.
