Two Texas A&M football players have been charged with assault following an incident that took place in April. In response, the school announced on Monday that both players -- cornerback Deshazor Everett and safety Floyd Raven-- have been suspended from team activities.

Everett and Raven each face two counts of assault after being accused of striking two men in the face at an apartment complex in College Station on April 30. The two players are also accused of causing more than $500 in damage to a car that was at the scene of the fight.

According to The Eagle, Raven turned himself to Brazos County Jail on Monday morning and is expected to be released on bail after being processed. Everett has not turned himself in yet, but officials say he is aware that there is a warrant out for his arrest.

Everett appeared in 12 games for the Aggies last season, finishing the year with 56 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes defended. One of Everett's two interceptions came against Alabama, as he picked off an AJ McCarron pass on fourth-and-goal in the final minutes to seal Texas A&M's upset victory over the Crimson Tide.

Raven had 16 tackles while playing in 13 games.

Both players were listed as starters on Texas A&M's post-spring depth chart.
