COLORADO: Quarterback Jordan Webb and former offensive lineman Alex Lewis have been charged with second-degree assault.

Athletic spokesman Dave Plati said the two were arrested early Saturday morning, but declined to comment about the charges because he hadn't seen the affidavit. The Boulder County Sheriff's Office did not immediately return a call for comment.

Webb was Colorado's primary starter last season, throwing for 1,434 yards and eight touchdowns with eight interceptions.

Lewis, the starting left guard who announced Friday he was transferring to Nebraska, also was charged with two counts of harassment.
