Former Oregon TE Colt Lyerla arrested

Last night, ex-Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla was booked for possession of cocaine. According to Oregon's Register-Guard, police observed Lyerla snorting what appeared to be a white powdery substance while in a parked vehicle. After being confronted by police, Lyerla admitted to possessing and using cocaine.

The 20-year-old has had a rough month as he decided to leave the team on October 7. This came on the heels of Lyerla missing games against Tennessee and Colorado for what coach Mark Helfrich said was a suspension  for violating team rules. Earlier this month, Lyerla left the team in what he said was to prepare himself for the NFL Draft this spring. Lyerla's status is sure to take a hit as there were already whispers of character concerns among scouts.
