BOULDER, COLO. (AP) - Two college football players accused of knocking a man unconscious in a weekend brawl have been charged with second-degree assault.

University of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb and former offensive lineman Alexander Lewis appeared in court Wednesday but waived a formal advisement of charges.

Witnesses told police that 22-year-old Lee Bussey was knocked unconscious early Saturday when Lewis shoved his head into a brick wall. Lewis and Webb allegedly pushed him to the ground and punched him.

Lewis announced Friday that he planned to transfer to Nebraska and his lawyer initially said Lewis was wearing Cornhuskers attire at the time of the fight. However, lawyer Donald Brenner now says he wasn’t. He said Lewis‘ status with Nebraska is up in the air and will depend on the outcome of the case.
