LSU: A person familiar with the decision says No. 1 LSU has suspended star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, defensive back Tharold Simon and running back Spencer Ware for Saturday’s home game against Auburn because they’ve run afoul of the team’s drug policy.

The person told The Associated Press about the suspensions on condition of anonymity because they have not been announced. LSU Coach Les Miles declined to confirm any punishment for the three players, saying only that he is dealing with an internal disciplinary matter.

Mathieu has forced four fumbles, recovering three and returning two for scores. He also has two interceptions and 42 tackles, including 1½ sacks.

Ware is unbeaten LSU’s leading rusher with 512 yards and six touchdowns.

ARKANSAS: Coach Bobby Petrino says freshman running back Kody Walker had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his shin.

Petrino didn’t say how many games Walker would miss for the No. 10 Razorbacks (5-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference). He only said it “will take a while for that to heal.”

Walker has five touchdowns this season for Arkansas, gaining 68 yards on 20 carries.
