ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico coach Mike Locksley has indefinitely suspended three players Friday after a nightclub fight, including a reserve linebacker who was arrested.

Receiver Bryant Williams, who started seven games this season, won’t play Saturday against the #3 TCU Horned Frogs,  ending his college career since he is a senior.

Also suspended were sophomore linebacker Joe Harris and junior linebacker Julion Conley, who was arrested on battery, aggravated battery and public affray charges.

Locksley issued a statement that indicated several members of a campus fraternity — including the three Lobo players — were involved in Wednesday night’s incident.

After an earlier incident at a bar, Locksley enacted a rule prohibiting players from being in the downtown nightclub district, and that ban remained in effect this week.

Saturday’s game against the Horned Frogs kicks off at 3:00 locally.
