Another Vanderbilt player has been indicted following an alleged sexual assault that took place in a Vanderbilt dormitory in June.

Three more people were indicted Friday, including Vanderbilt wide receiver Chris Boyd. The other two were Miles Finley and Dominick Quinzio, both of whom are friends of former Vanderbilt player Brandon Vandenburg, who was one of the four former Vanderbilt players to originally be indicted in the case.

Boyd is charged with being an accessory after the fact, which is a felony count. Boyd is alleged to have participated in a cover-up of the alleged assault by advice he gave to his former teammates.

Boyd is expected to surrender to authorities and his bond has been set at $25,000.

Boyd has been suspended from the team pending further review.

Unlike the four former players -- Vandenburg, Brandon Banks, Tip McKenzie and Corey Batey -- who were charged with multiple counts of aggravated rape and aggravated sexual battery last week, Boyd has been a major contributor for the Commodores.

Boyd caught 50 passes for 774 yards and five touchdowns for the Commodores last season..
