Pittsburgh receiver Tyler Boyd and defensive end Rori Blair have been suspended for the season opener against Youngstown State for separate DUI incidents this offseason, coach Pat Narduzzi announced Monday.
Boyd was sentenced to one year of probation after he was charged with DUI in June. Blair was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after an arrest in March.
"In addition to their game suspensions, Tyler and Rori have been, and will continue to be, subject to internal discipline and accountability," Narduzzi said in a statement. "The situations were very disappointing and both young men have expressed their regret. Our expectation is that each of them, as well as our entire team, will learn from their mistakes and be better for it moving forward."
Boyd has posted consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons and is expected to be an integral part of the offense. Blair, who overcame a stroke in high school, led the team with 5.5 sacks last season and is expected to start.
