SEATTLE (AP) — Washington quarterback Cyler Miles has apologized for his involvement in an off-field incident after the Super Bowl that led to his suspension for the Huskies’ season opener at Hawaii.

Miles was investigated for his role in a Super Bowl night fight that included former teammate Damore’ea Stringfellow, who was dismissed from the program. Miles was suspended for spring practice. He was reinstated to the team after not being charged by prosecutors.

Miles apologized reading a prepared statement after practice Wednesday, then said the suspension for the opener by coach Chris Petersen was a fair punishment.

Miles was the presumptive starter going into 2014 after appearing in eight games with one start last season, throwing for 418 yards and four touchdowns and running for another 200 yards.
