Linebacker Aaron Brown and wideout Darius Bright have been suspended for the Colorado game because of their arrest Sunday night following their alleged involvement in a fight in Waikiki.

Both players will be allowed to resume practicing Tuesday morning.

Athletic Director Jim Donovan and head coach Greg McMackin will continue to gather information about the incident and will decide next Tuesday whether the players will be allowed to make the two-game road trip to Washington and UNLV.

"Aaron and Darius used extremely poor judgment and in turn embarrassed the football program and the university," head coach Greg McMackin said in a press release.

"These are two young men who have never been in trouble with the law before, but became involved in a situation where they did not make the right choices."

Both players also will face team disciplinary measures, and must perform community service.

Brown and Bright met with with McMackin this morning, after which they apologized to teammates in a meeting.

They also issued apologizes to McMackin and Donovan.

"We want to make sure our student-athletes live up to the standards of representing their team, their university, and the entire state in the right way," Donovan said in a press release. "We’ll continue to be collecting more facts throughout the next few days before making a decision on their game status next week."

At this morning’s practice, middle linebacker Corey Paredes was at weakside linebacker, the position normally manned by Brown. George Daily-Lyles replaced Parades at middle linebacker. Allen Sampson was the No. 1 left wideout in place of Bright.
