UPDATE: Stoneburner, Mewhort Suspended Indefinitely

Ohio State tight end Jake Stoneburner along with offensive tackle Jack Mewhort were suspended by Urban Meyer indefinitely Sunday evening.

We'd wondered what punishment would be befitting Buckeyes tight end Jake Stoneburner and offensive lineman Jack Mewhort after a weekend which saw them arrested following urinating in public and running from police after being confronted during the incident. We got our answer. Per David Briggs of the Toledo Blade and the players' lawyer, Urban Meyer has suspended both Mewhort and Stoneburner indefinitely. Will they actually miss time or does this provide the cover for Meyer to handle matters internally? It's difficult to say.

DWI's in the past often resulted in one game suspensions under Jim Tressel and while this matter doesn't quite measure up in the sheer danger magnitude of a reckless action like driving while intoxicated, you'd have to think Meyer would like to make a statement about how his administration will handle run-ins with the law.

If I had to make a wager as to the specific duration of the ultimate suspensions handed down to the two, I'd guess a game though a quarter or half are certainly not out of the question.
