Derrick Washington Has Been 'Permanently Suspended' From Mizzou Football

Were you hoping RB Derrick Washington could return to the Mizzou football team soon?

Think again.

After announcing last week that Washington was suspended "indefinitely", MU athletic officials tell Mike DeArmond of the Kansas City Star that Washington has been "permanently suspended" from the Mizzou football team.

Here's what MU told the Star via email:

Derrick Washington has been permanently suspended from the University of Missouri football program. Nothing about this decision will affect his existing athletic scholarship as long as he remains enrolled at Mizzou.

A month ago, Washington was a team captain and one of the leaders of the Mizzou football team.

He's been charged with sexual assault.
