Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaeffer and receiver Bret Smith were suspended indefinitely from the team Monday, a day after they were charged with hitting a student.

Police were told Schaeffer and Smith hit a student who was arguing with Schaeffer's girlfriend in a campus dormitory early Sunday.

Part of Schaeffer's involvement in the incident was caught on tape by a video camera in the dorm lobby, University of Tennessee police said. The two have been charged with a misdemeanor.

Coach Phillip Fulmer suspended the players, who will miss the remaining two days of spring practice this week and the annual Orange and White game on Saturday.

"They made a bad social decision and were poor representatives of our team," Fulmer said in a statement released Monday.
