LSU is without a key linebacker following a May arrest of a Georgia pawn shop.
Taylor was allegedly the getaway driver in a heist that happened in January, but LSU officials were made aware of it on Wednesday. Reports from The Advocate and NOLA.com have said that Taylor is suspended indefinitely following the incident and a violation of team rules.
The Advocate reported from an incident report by the Cumming Police Department that said that on the early morning of Jan. 8, three men and a juvenile broke into a pawn shop in Cumming, Ga., stole several firearms and fled the scene in a vehicle driven by Taylor.
Taylor is from Buford, Ga. which is about 12 miles from Cumming. Taylor was reportedly booked into a local jail on May 31 and posted bond about five hours later.
Taylor has practiced with the LSU football team since preseason camp began Saturday, and he also participated in spring practice, between the burglary and his May 31 arrest.
Taylor played in every game last season, with 32 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Can confirm that Tyler Taylor has been suspended by #LSU indefinitely after offseason arrest.
LSU officials confirmed they learned of the incident Wednesday and he is suspended for a violation of team rules.
