WACO (October 7, 2010)—Two Baylor football players have bonded out of the McLennan County Jail after their arrests for possession of marijuana.

Sophomore receivers Willie Jefferson and Josh Gordon both posted $1000 bonds.

News 10 was told by Baylor officials that they can't confirm whether or not the players have been suspended for this weekend's game with Texas Tech. Art Briles has a policy of keeping any sort of discipline internal.

Both men were arrested Sunday by Waco officers after police received a report that a man was passed out in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in the drive-through at the Taco Bell at 824 S. 6th St.

Officers found a plastic bag containing marijuana on the center console and other bags of pot in the driver’s side floorboard, police said.

Jefferson, a former All State high school athlete from Beaumont, has been arrested for possession before.

He was arrested Jan. 25, 2009 just about a week and a half before he signed with Baylor.
