PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh football coach Paul Chryst has dismissed two players and suspended another indefinitely after they were charged with possession of drug paraphenalia. Another player was suspended after he was charged with assault.

Tight end Drew Carswell and defensive back Eric Williams, both juniors, have been removed from the team. Carswell, Williams and defensive tackle Khaynin Mosley-Smith were all suspended last week after police made a drug raid on their house.

All three players were charged by summons. Mosley-Smith remains suspended.

Chryst has also suspended freshman QB Tra'von Chapman indefinitely. Chapman was arrested in Ohio over the weekend on charges of assault and unlawful restraint. He has pleaded not guilty.
