Geno Smith suspended for season opener

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -

Alabama defensive back Geno Smith will be suspended for the Crimson Tide's season opener against Virginia Tech.

Nick Saban announced the move after practice on Tuesday.

Smith was arrested for driving under the influence early Sunday morning, and was back on the practice field Tuesday, though not with his usual group. Instead, he worked with a number of walk-ons.

"We've never had an issue with Geno, he's an excellent person," Saban said. "He's never been in trouble before, never been in my office for anything, but I think this is something that everybody should learn from. When you make a bad choice, sometimes the consequences of that choice can really have a negative effect."

Alabama is back to work on Wednesday, the first day of class on campus.
