PSU's Taylor suspended through summer

Penn State defensive tackle Phil Taylor accepted sanctions Thursday from the university's Office of Judicial Affairs for his involvement in an on-campus fight in October, Penn State spokesman Lisa Powers confirmed in an e-mail Friday.

Taylor, who is currently indefinitely suspended from the football team, will be allowed to complete the spring semester of classes but will be suspended for both summer sessions. Taylor has also permanently lost his privileges to live in residence halls and is on probation through graduation. He also must take anger management and counseling sessions.

Taylor still faces legal charges for his involvement in the fight.
