A return to the field this spring for suspended Washington quarterback Cyler Miles has not been ruled out by UW coach Chris Peterson.

Peterson told Adam Jude of The Seattle Times Saturday that a decision has yet to be made on the sophomore, who was suspended in February after being linked to an alleged assault. The King County prosecutor’s office announced Thursday that Miles would not be charged.

Petersen said “it’s not” safe to assume Miles won’t be seen this spring.

“We just haven’t really decided on that whole situation,” Petersen said. “It’s kind of one day, one week at a time. There’s no reason to rush anything, and we’re always going to do the right thing. I know everyone thinks they have their opinion on what the right thing is, but we’re going to do the right thing by the school, by this program and by the kids as well.”

A return for wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow, who was suspended at the same time as Miles, is much less likely, as he was charged with three gross misdemeanors in the assault case.
