They were arraigned Wednesday in District Court in Mason on a felony robbery charge, according to court records. Williams also was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery in the altercation on April 21.
A pretrial hearing was set for Oct. 30 on the robbery case.
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement that the players - unnamed - maintained their innocence. He said the team was notified in April about the case and monitored the situation.
Dantonio said the players will remain on the roster and retain the opportunity to play. Adams was the starting linebacker, Williams the starting cornerback and Ware a reserve.
