2 Ohio University players suspended, face charges

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio University players are suspended indefinitely from the football team after being arrested on drug charges as the Bobcats prepared for Sunday’s opener at ninth-ranked Louisville.

Authorities say 21-year-old junior cornerback Larenzo Fisher of Washington and 20-year-old freshman quarterback Greg Windham were arrested Wednesday. The Athens Messenger (http://bit.ly/12NBMLJ ) reports they’re accused of trafficking MDMA, the drug commonly called ecstasy.

Fisher was charged with four counts and Windham with one. Both pleaded not guilty to the charges and face court dates in November.

The court had no attorneys on record for them.

The Messenger reports Fisher already was sitting out the first two games for unrelated disciplinary reasons. He has played in 23 games, starting 11.

Windham was redshirted last year and was vying to be No. 3 quarterback.
