Coach Tyrone Willingham announced today that cornerback Jordan Murchison has been "charged with a felony," apparently in connection with a domestic assult incident.
Murchison did not practice with the team today -- he was in jail for failure to appear in court -- but Willingham said his eventual playing status has not been determined.
"When I get more information I will speak to his status with our team, but not until I get more information," Willingham said told the media in our evening briefing. "I don't know the actual particulars."
Murchison is a junior college transfer from Oakland. He was a member of the team last season, but didn't see game action.
This season, however, he was among the top candidates – along with Byron Davenport and Matt Moseley – for a starting cornerback position opposite Roy Lewis.
