Texas Players Charged With DWI to Miss First 3 Games

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas defensive end Henry Melton and linebacker Sergio Kindle will miss the first three games of the 2007 season after being charged in separate DWI cases over the summer.

Melton and Kindle will also be held out of the first couple of days of practice and must perform community service for the team.

"I think we've got to send a message and kids have to learn," coach Mack Brown said on Sunday

The Longhorns reported Sunday for training camp for the upcoming season.

Kindle, a sophomore, was expected to compete for significant playing time this season. Melton, a converted running back, had moved to defensive end full time in the spring.

Kindle and Melton will miss games against Arkansas St., TCU and Central Florida.

They are among four Texas football players who were arrested and charged over the summer.

One, freshman linebacker Dre Jones, was suspended last week after being charged with aggravated robbery.

Also on Sunday, running backs coach Ken Rucker announced that he has prostate cancer. He will coach the team until he has surgery on Aug. 27 and hopes to return to the sideline before the end of the season.
