Les Miles suspends offensive lineman Josh Boutte for one game
BATON ROUGE – LSU football coach Les Miles has suspended offensive lineman Josh Boutte for one game.
The suspension is for his personal foul on Wisconsin defensive back D'Cota Dixon during the Tigers' season-opener on Saturday. Miles said Boutte will sit out LSU's home-opener against Jacksonville State on Saturday night.
"Josh made a mistake and will serve a one game suspension because of it," Miles said. "Even though this was done by mistake, a play like this does not belong in the game of football and therefore action must be taken."
Miles said that Boutte called Dixon on Monday morning to apologize for the personal foul.
"This play does not define Josh as a person and is not indicative of the type of player he is. We sincerely apologize for his mistake," Miles said.
Boutte was ejected in the second half of Saturday's game following the foul.
