PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Prosecutors in Rhode Island say there will be no charges against two Brown University football players who had been accused of sexual assault.

A Providence College student told police in February she believes she had been drugged at a bar in November. She says she woke up in a Brown dorm room and was sexually assaulted.

The attorney general's office said Monday a grand jury declined to indict the players and no charges will be brought.

Lawyers for both players said their clients are relieved by the grand jury's decision.

A university spokesman said Brown did not immediately have a statement on the case. He could not say whether the players will return to start classes next week.
