The university’s athletic department said in a statement Thursday night that it was “aware of an incident involving student-athletes which occurred off campus over the weekend.”

The athletic department said it was working with the university’s Dean of Students to gather details.

A message was left with Lincoln police.

Suttles, from Tampa, Florida signed with the Huskers in February and was set to join the program this fall. Pelini had said in February that Suttles had a chance to be an immediate contributor as a freshman. Brown, from Gardena, California was to be a redshirt freshman this season.
