(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah running back Marty Johnson is suspended.

Johnson was arrested last week for drunk driving.

Police say Johnson swerved across the center line, crashed into a curb and landed on a grass parking strip. It's the second time he was arrested for drunk driving in 11-months.

Utah Coach Urban Meyer announced Johnson's suspension yesterday. But he wouldn't say if it was related to Johnson's arrest.

Johnson's been on the sidelines with a foot injury for the first three games of this season.

Meyer says it's still too early to tell if Johnson will return to the team.

Johnson was fined in the earlier case and sentenced to community service. He'll be arraigned in this case Thursday.
