Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver La’Vontae Shenault was suspended indefinitely by head coach Karl Dorrell on Monday.
Shenault wasn’t on the sidelines for the game against No. 5 Texas A&M. He was serving the start of his suspension for violating team and athletic department rules, according to a statement by University of Colorado officials.
This isn’t the first time Shenault has been suspended.
The DeSoto, Texas star was held out of last year’s Alamo Bowl vs. Texas for a violation of athletic department policy. According to court documents, Shenault failed to appear in court on a traffic violation two week prior which likely led to his bowl game suspension.
It was one of several traffic incidents to happen away from Boulder for Shenault. In July of 2020, He was arrested by Fort Collins police for DUI and was later released on a personal recognizance bond with his license restrained.
Vontae, the younger brother of Buffaloes star Laviska, was listed as a primary go-to receiving option on CU’s latest depth chart. He caught two passes for 23 yards in the season opener against Northern Colorado.
Dorrell said WR La'Vontae Shenault has a chance to re-join the #CUBuffs in the future. "I believe in rehabilitation," but added Shenault has a list of things to do in order to get reinstated.— Adam Munsterteiger (@adamcm777) September 14, 2021
