Tyrann Mathieu will not play football this season and continues to focus on working on himself, his adoptive father Tyrone told ESPN's Joe Schad on Thursday.

Tyrone Mathieu said last week that that the 20-year-old cornerback and punt returner known as the "Honey Badger" has been at the Right Step recovery center and is being counseled by former NBA player John Lucas.

LSU said last week about 20 college football programs had asked the school for permission to speak with All-America cornerback and punt returner, who was kicked off the team earlier this month, for what a source told ESPN was a violation of the school's substance abuse policy.

Maybe it's not such a bad thing that Tyrann concentrates on getting himself well, instead of where he is going to play football this year. We wish him luck!
