Head Coach Karl Dorrell hands down the discipline on sophomore linebacker John Hale and freshman defensive tackle Jess Ward, there is the first injury of the fall Tuesday, and a BRO message board poster gives us a rundown of the second practice of the season...

Sophomore linebacker John Hale and defensive tackle Jess Ward were suspended from the team for the season opener, the game against Utah September 2nd.

Hale and Ward pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault charges in July, stemming from an incident last winter.

Hale is expected to be the starting strongside tackle this season, so without him, Korey Bosworth, Fred Holmes or possible Aaron Whittington could start in his place against Utah.

-- Senior wide receiver Joe Cowan injured his knee toward the end of practice Tuesday and was supposed to undergo an MRI. Dorrell said after practice he didn't think the injury was serious but the MRI was precautionary.

-- Dorrell commented that junior cornerback Rodney Van was the leader for the one open cornerback position in the secondary.

-- While BRO has temporarily been on the disabled list in reporting from practice, two message board posters supply reports from practice Tuesday: Brewnz's Report and Bouncepass's Notes
