Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin dismissed LB Darian Claiborne and DL Isaiah Golden.

The pair had been in limbo since they were arrested for separate violations in February. Both were arrested again and charged with aggravated robbery Tuesday, sealing their fates. It's unfortunate news for the Aggies, who were counting on both sophomores as defensive stalwarts in 2014. "These two individuals have failed to meet the high expectations and standards that we have for our football players and as representatives of this university," Sumlin said in a statement. "These two players have exhibited a pattern of behavior that we will not tolerate at Texas A&M."

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said there is no timeline for LB Darian Claiborne and DL Isaiah Golden to return from suspension.

"No timeline," Sumlin said. "Pending investigation and everything else, they're suspended indefinitely." Claiborne (disorderly conduct) and Golden (pot possession) were suspended for separate arrests last weekend. Both Claiborne and Golden are projected starters. "It's a concern," Sumlin said. "Every program faces challenges, not just during the offseason, but during the season. I think we do a great job of educating our players, and it's an ongoing process."
