Seth Davis of CBS reports today via Twitter that Tennessee hoops coach Bruce Pearl is seriously considering playing “some” of the players who were arrested on drugs, alcohol and weapons charges yesterday as early as the team’s next game on Wednesday:
According to the Knoxville Police Dept. news release/police report on the matter, two of the four players arrested, Tyler Smith and Brian Williams, actually may be charged with felony gun possession.
Incidentally Pearl has officially suspended the four players - for now.
UPDATE (2:57p ET): Davis adds via Twitter: “To be clear, Bruce was not downplaying the charges AT ALL, just clarifying they weren’t felonies. He doesn’t have all the info he needs yet.“
