Texas A&M cornerback Deshazor Everett and safety Floyd Raven, both of whom are listed as starters on the Aggies' current depth chart, face two counts of assault stemming from an incident that occurred in April.
Everett and Raven were accused of striking two men in the face at an apartment complex in College Station on April 30. They were also accused of causing more than $500 in damage to a car at the scene of the incident.
Raven turned himself in to Brazos County Jail Monday morning and was expected to be released on bail after being processed but Everett had not turned himself in as of Monday morning but was aware there was a warrant out for his arrest, according to The Eagle newspaper of Bryan-College Station, Texas.
Everett had 56 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes defensed in 12 games last year while Raven had 16 tackles in 13 games.

---Running back Michael Dyer, who was dismissed by Auburn and Arkansas State because of off-the-field problems, said he has cleaned up his act and would like another shot at college football rather than enter the upcoming NFL supplemental draft.
Dyer helped Auburn win the national championship as a true freshman, sealing the victory over Oregon in the 2011 BCS national championship game with a memorable run.
However, incidents involving drugs and weapons led to his departure from both schools.
Dyer has two years of eligibility remaining.

--- The PGA Tour will go along with the ban of anchored putters in 2016 by the United States Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the rules-making bodies of the sport.
According to media reports, the PGA Tour's Policy Board met on Monday at White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., where the Greenbrier Classic will be played this week, and discussed the matter before voting to go along with the ban.
There had been some speculation that the PGA Tour and the PGA of America, which is against the ban specifically for recreational golfers, might go their own way on the issue.
