WSU Football: All Not Well In Locker Room As Freshman Sucker Punches Unidentified Teammate


Based on a report on KQQQ, Washington State freshman defensive lineman Emmitt Su’a-Kalio is in the Whitman County jail after being booked on a felony second degree assault charge.

The charge was brought forth by an unidentified teammate of Su’a-Kalio on Thursday afternoon, when he called police and told them he was sucker punched by another player on the football team. Supposedly, the incident took place on Tuesday morning. Cougar coaches worked with WSU police to bring in the freshman defensive lineman Thursday evening.

The injured player had to go to Spokane and have surgery to wire his broken jaw shut. There is no news as of yet on the player and it is unclear if this is a product of Mike Leach not allowing injury information to be released, one would have to think that is the case.

One thing we do know is that it seems like all the starters practiced on Thursday afternoon and save for a small change at offensive line the team is in tact for Cal this weekend. Nobody of significance was rendered missing for the practice by CougFan.com on Thursday evening. There have also been no odd happenings reported this week in practice.
