AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn coach Gene Chizik has suspended center Reese Dismukes following the sophomore's arrest on a public intoxication charge.
Chizik says he is "very disappointed in Reese Dismukes for his irresponsible behavior" Friday night. The suspension comes eight days before Tigers open against Clemson in Atlanta's Georgia Dome.
Chizik did not say how long Dismukes' suspension would last. The Lee County's sheriff's office said that the starter was released on a $300 bond. It did not offer further details.
Dismukes was one of the only certainties on Auburn's offensive line, which has had competition at several positions. His backup is sophomore Tunde Fariyike.
Dismukes did not return a message seeking comment. He was one of two offensive players to start every game last season at the same position.
