Washington State wide receiver Marquess Wilson suspended for the week

William Mancebo

The junior wide receiver was suspended after reportedly walking out of practice Sunday night.

It's been a bad 48 hours for the Washington State Cougars. After a 49-6 drubbing at the hands of the Utah Utes, junior wide receiver Marquess Wilson reportedly walked out of practice after refusing to participate in a push-up drill. Wilson has been suspended for the week and his future with the team is in doubt.

Head coach Mike Leach met with reporters today and addressed Wilson's status with the team, including reports Wilson has quit altogether.

Leach did leave open the possibility of Wilson returning to the team but said that would be between him and the receiver. He also noted if anyone is expecting him or is coaching staff to change the way they do things, they're in for a long wait.

As far as how long Wilson's suspension will run, it could be more than just one game.

The Cougars were mathematically eliminated from bowl contention with the loss to Utah. They'll play their first game in Pullman in a month and a half when they take on the No. 18 UCLA Bruins this weekend.
