Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Van­der­bilt de­fen­sive backs Tae Da­ley and Frank Cop­pet are re­cov­er­ing and do­ing well, though they are still sus­pended from the team, af­ter they were shot on June 26 while at­tempt­ing to help team­mate Don­aven Ten­nyson re­cover a stolen cell phone. Ten­nyson is also serv­ing an in­def­i­nite sus­pen­sion due to the in­ci­dent, Van­der­bilt Coach Derek Ma­son said.

Ac­cord­ing to me­dia reports, Da­ley was shot in the leg and Cop­pet was shot in the arm af­ter Cop­pet pulled a pel­let pis­tol fol­low­ing a heated ex­change out­side a Tar­get store.

“Right now, Frank and Tae are do­ing well,” Ma­son said. “Th­ese young men are heal­ing well. … I’m just glad they’re safe.

“I don’t agree with the de­ci­sion­mak­ing process of th­ese young men all of the time. … Th­ese guys are sus­pended in­def­i­nitely, but when you look at it, I’m just try­ing to get young men from where they are to where they need to be.”
