Massachusetts sophomore linebacker Da’Sean Downey is facing two charges of assault and battery causing serious bodily injury in connection with a fight in Hadley that occurred last February, as first reported Thursday by Diane Lederman of MassLive.

Downey, of White Plains, New York, is reportedly the originally unnamed football player that was involved in a fight at a house on Rocky Hill Road on Feb. 22 that left two UMass students seriously injured.

As a result of this incident, one of the male victims reportedly lost consciousness, was missing several teeth and had to be transported from Cooley Dickinson Hospital to the UMass Medical Center for surgery.

The other victim reportedly suffered a broken nose. Both men identified the assailant as Downey, according to MassLive’s report.

Downey has been present with the team since last Monday’s start of fall training camp. However, his reps had been limited due to injury, as he’s been in a walking boot.

Downey’s arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 21 at Eastern Hampshire District Court in Belchertown.
