LSU players delay meeting with police after apparent brawl

What LSU coach Les Miles described as a large group of Tiger players sneaked out after curfew Friday to a Baton Rouge bar where a fight broke out. Four people, none of them players, were treated at an area hospital.

Now four of the players, including starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson, have delayed a meeting with police so their attorney can gather more information. Miles is not happy and says he has already started disciplining the players. Two questions remain: whether the police will level charges and will Jefferson be the starting quarterback when LSU opens its season Sept. 3 against Oregon.

Here's the morning report from the Baton Rouge Advocate.
