Pitt senior starting defensive end Jabaal Sheard has been suspended indefinitely from team activities as a result of his role in an altercation in the South Side early Sunday morning. Sheard was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault as well as two misdemeanors (criminal mischief and resisting arrest) and a summary (disorderly conduct).

He was arraigned Sunday at 1:40 p.m. and will have a preliminary hearing July 28.

"We are in the midst of gathering information on a weekend incident involving Jabaal Sheard," said Pitt athletic department spokesman E.J. Borghetti. "While we conduct our own investigation Jabaal has been indefinitely suspended from team activities."

Last season Sheard, from Hollywood Hills, Fla., started all 13 games for the Panthers and had 42 tackles, 10 1/2 for loss, 5 sacks and a team-high 12 quarterback hurries.
