STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Three Penn State football players charged in connection with a campus fight last fall have been kicked off the team, at least temporarily, a person familiar with the players' status said Friday.
Defensive tackle Chris Baker and linebacker Navorro Bowman are awaiting trial on felony assault and other charges related to a fight last October at the campus student union.
Cornerback Knowledge Timmons was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and defiant trespass stemming from an incident after the fight.
The three players are no longer with the team, though it's possible they could return to the squad, said the person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the subject.
In a statement, the school said: ``Three members of the squad have been excused from the team.''
Besides the criminal charges, Baker, Bowman and Timmons face potential disciplinary action from the university.
