AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -Texas defensive end Henry Melton and linebacker Sergio Kindle will miss the first three games of the 2007 season after being charged in separate DWI cases over the summer.
Melton and Kindle will also be held out of the first couple of days of practice and must perform community service for the team.
``I think we've got to send a message and kids have to learn,'' coach Mack Brown said on Sunday
The Longhorns reported Sunday for training camp for the upcoming season.
Kindle, a sophomore, was expected to compete for significant playing time this season. Nelson, a converted running back, had moved to defensive end full time in the spring.
Kindle and Nelson are among four Texas football players who were arrested and charged over the summer.
