— Two Missouri freshman football players are recovering from injuries they suffered in a traffic accident in Columbia, Mo.

Campus police say linebacker Eric Beisel and cornerback Anthony Sherrils were passengers in a vehicle that struck another car Tuesday morning near Memorial Stadium.

Beisel, Sherrils and the driver were thrown into the windshield. University police Capt. Scott Richardson says none of the injured occupants was wearing a seat belt.

They were taken to University Hospital with minor injuries. The other driver remained hospitalized Wednesday afternoon in fair condition.

A team spokesman says the players won't face any punishment for the accident.
