Timetable for FSU's James 5-7 weeks after surgery

TALLAHASSEE — Florida State defensive back Derwin James will miss 5-7 weeks after having surgery on Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The second-ranked Seminoles (2-0) travel to No. 10 Louisville (2-0) on Saturday.

James suffered the injury in the second half of last week's win over Charleston Southern. The 6-foot-3, 211-pound James is used as a safety, corner in nickel situations and as an edge rusher. He had eight tackles and an interception in the opener against then-No. 11 Mississippi and recorded three tackles against Charleston Southern.

Army back at work: Army coach Jeff Monken and his Black Knights knew the best way to honor Brandon Jackson was to return to practice with a purpose. So that's what the team did Monday, a day after Jackson, a 20-year-old sophomore defensive back from Queens, N.Y., died in a single-car crash. "Right from the get-go and just being out there was therapeutic for our team," Monken said Tuesday. "I think they were just glad to be out there together, and to be able to feel like they were doing something together to honor Brandon." The fatal accident occurred at around 1:50 a.m. Sunday about 20 miles south of the West Point campus, according to police and the U.S. Military Academy. The crash remains under investigation.

North Carolina: A magistrate issued an arrest warrant for Allen Artis, a 21-year-old junior linebacker, who is accused of sexual battery and assault on a woman in February. The warrant says he had sex with the woman while she was "mentally incapacitated and physically helpless."

UNLV: The program received the largest single gift in its history and will put the $10 million from the Fertitta family toward a new training facility. The gift will go toward the new facility, named the Fertitta Football Complex. The two-level, 73,000-square-foot complex will include an academic center, locker rooms, a workout center, training center and a nutrition bar.

USC: Sophomore linebackers Osa Masina and Don Hill were suspended from team activities while they are under investigation for sexual assault.
