Auburn's Dyer reportedly filing paperwork with Arkansas State

The rumor that Mike Dyer could possibly transfer to Arkansas State after being suspended by Auburn head coach Gene Chizik?

There are some legs to it.

According to National Football Authority, the sophomore All-SEC running back filed paperwork Wednesday afternoon to enroll at Arkansas State with the intention of rejoining his offensive coordinator with the Tigers, Gus Malzahn. Malzahn landed the Red Wolves' head coaching gig this offseason.

Auburn's leading rusher from 2011 was suspended from the team's Chick-fil-A Bowl game against Virginia for violating a team rule.

Dyer, who rushed for 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns on 242 carries this fall, reportedly could request a medical hardship so he can play in 2012 and be near family that is ill.

It seems a bit strange that Dyer would risk sitting out a year to transfer to a fellow FBS program, so perhaps he believes he has enough information regarding obtaining a waiver. Stay tuned.
