SU's Thomas Suspended for One Year Publisher
Posted Nov 18, 2011

Reports surfaced about Phillip Thomas being suspended from the football team on Thursday, and the SU Athletic Department made it official a day later.

Statement from the Syracuse Athletic Department:

Syracuse University junior free safety Phillip Thomas has been suspended from the football program for one year for a violation of Athletics Department Policy.

That's all that was said. From the looks of it, it is not just a failed drug test or the result of a punching incident as some have speculated. Thomas' SU career is in jeopardy.
