Nebraska football's Washington not part of the program at this time

Nebraska running back Maurice Washington is not with the team and won't play in the Cornhuskers' home game against Indiana on Saturday. 

Coach Scott Frost announced Washington's status today, stopping short of calling it a suspension.  Frost said he didn't see Washington being part of the team's plans in the "immediate future."  Washington has been held out of the first halves of two games for disciplinary reasons.  Frost didn't disclose a reason for Washington's absence but said players are expected to meet certain standards in order to play.  Frost said Washington's absence is not related to child pornography charges he faces in California.  Frost said Washington has not practiced since the Huskers' loss at Minnesota on Oct. 12.  The Huskers were idle this past Saturday.
