WACO, TEXAS (AP) - Two Baylor football players, including one of its top receivers, have been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Sophomore receivers Willie Jefferson and Josh Gordon are free on their own recognizance after their arrests.

Waco Police Sgt. Melvin Roseborough says officers were called just after 2 a.m. Sunday to a Taco Bell near the Baylor campus. They say they found a man passed out in the driver’s seat of a car in the drive-through lane.

Roseborough identified the driver as Jefferson, with Gordon as Jefferson’s passenger. The officers reported finding marijuana in the car.

Baylor said coach Art Briles has aware of the situation and had no comment. The Bears host Texas Tech on Saturday.
