11/17/14 - Neiron BallrSr/2015, Florida, 6-2, 230 (DS#29 OLB) [Newsfeed]
Gators lose two linebackers for season...Despite the turmoil that has surrounded the Florida program, the Gators remain one win shy of qualifying for a bowl appearance. Their job became a little more difficult on Monday when lame-duck head coach Will Muschamp said two key contributors on defense will miss the remainder of the season. Redshirt senior linebacker Neiron Ball needs microfracture surgery and sophomore linebacker Jarrad Davis has suffered a torn meniscus. Both were hurt in a 23-20 loss to South Carolina. Davis was injured on the opening kickoff. Ball is tied for the second-most tackles on the team. He missed the entire 2011 season because of a burst blood vessel in his brain. Florida plays host to Eastern Kentucky this week, before traveling to play Florida State. If the Gators do become bowl eligible, they won't be coached by Muschamp. - The Sports Xchange

Two Volunteers suspended amid rape probe...Two University of Tennessee football players have been suspended from the team amid allegations of a sexual assault. A.J. Johnson and Michael Williams have been suspended, according to the school. On Monday, Knoxville police confirmed they are investigating reports of rape and sexual assault by two Tennessee students involving two female victims in off-campus housing. Football coach Butch Jones declined to identify the two players at a noon press briefing, but The Tennessean has identified the suspects as Johnson, a senior linebacker, and Williams, a sophomore defensive back.

The two players were suspended Monday afternoon, according to the school's Twitter account. The Tennessean said the incidents allegedly occurred about 3 a.m. Sunday. One 19-year-old victim -- a current Tennessee student -- told police she was raped by two male students. Another 19-year-old female -- a student visiting from an out-of-state college -- told police she was a victim of sexual assault. It's unknown if the incidents are related. Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk told the Tennessean that he doesn't anticipate charges being brought by the end of the day Monday, but added that "Every investigation moves at its own pace. - The Sports Xchange

The three interceptions gave him a school record of 13 for the season and tied the ACC record set by NC State’s David Amerson in 2011.
