Tulane suspends lineman Aluko

Tulane head coach Bob Toledo announced today that junior offensive guard Emmanuel Aluko has been indefinitely suspended for a violation of team policy. Aluko's suspension begins immediately and he will not participate in the remainder of the spring practices, including the spring game on April 24.

Aluko played in 10 games last season (two starts) at defensive tackle, but was moved to tight end. He was then moved to offensive line for spring drills.

Toledo would not elaborate on the actions that led Aluko’s suspension, but Aluko could be back with the team in the fall if he meets team requirements.

Toledo also announced that redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Rich Bell left the team for personal reasons.
