Former UofL football players plead not guilty to assaulting teammate

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Two former UofL football players were in court Thursday to answer to first degree assault charges stemming from a locker room fight last fall.

Police say twin brothers Isaac and Jacob Geffrad attacked fellow player Patrick Grant in the locker room of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium after an October practice.

The attorney for the brothers says he was hoping the assault charges would be reduced, but the judge didn't see it that way.

The case will go to the grand jury in March.
