Oregon suspends lineman Isaac Remington after arrest

Eugene, OR, United States (4E Sports) – Oregon has indefinitely suspended defensive lineman Isaac Remington pending clarification of Friday’s incident where the senior player was ticketed for allegedly driving under influence of intoxicants (DUII).

The school did not elaborate further about the length or conditions of Remington’s suspension.

According to the Eugene Police Department, the 23-year-old Remington was ticketed for DUII after a traffic stop around 12:30 a.m. near Oregon campus. He was taken into custody but was not jailed.

Remington has started all six games for Oregon this season, recording 12 tackles with four for a loss — third-best on the team.

With no games scheduled this week, the Ducks coaching staff led by coach Chip Kelly has the time to tinker with their plays without Remington and to address the issue internally.

Should Remington remain suspended for the Ducks’ game against Arizona State in Tempe, he will be replaced by freshman Arik Armstead.

“We’re going to see more of Armstead. He’s in the rotation, and Arik’s played good football for us,” Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti said in a radio interview.
