USC player suspended after retracting injury story

LOS ANGELES – Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw has acknowledged lying to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew.

Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all of the Trojans’ team activities, the university announced in a statement Wednesday.

USC didn’t explain how Shaw actually was injured in its statement, but university officials said they regret posting a story lauding Shaw’s tale on their website Monday.

Coach Steve Sarkisian said the Trojans are “extremely disappointed in Josh.”

Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a team captain and a key starter in USC’s defensive secondary.

The university said Shaw has retained legal counsel.
