November 7, 2003

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Two more Central Florida football players were suspended Thursday, bringing to five the number disciplined this week by the school.

Defensive tackle DeMarcus Johnson was suspended for the rest of the season and guard Dan Veenstra for one game for violating team rules.

Assistant athletic director John Marini refused to say what rules were broken, citing student privacy.

The disciplinary action follows the suspension Tuesday for the rest of the season of quarterback Ryan Schneider and center Cedric Gagne-Marcoux, also for unspecified rules violations.

On Wednesday, cornerback Omar Laurence was arrested by university police and charged with having a gun on campus and stealing another gun during an on-campus fight. He was suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the criminal charges.
