Watch Randy Edsall's full comments in the video player above, following a short advertisement.

Maryland head coach Randy Edsall, in his first meeting with the media since news Friday of charges against two of his players -- linebacker Alex Twine and wide receiver Levern Jacobs -- went public, spoke without saying much about the situation facing the senior and junior.

"It's one of those situations where I really can't talk about it," Edsall said on Tuesday in College Park. "We are still in the process of gathering all the information and as soon as there is something for me to say based on that situation we'll get that information out."

Another question then pressed Edsall about the fact that Jacobs did not take part in the first week of camp.

"That's something that I decided to do based on things that I felt that I needed to do in terms of what was in the best interest of our program and the best interest of Levern," Edsall said.

Twine and Jacobs were both charged on Thursday with second-degree assault stemming from an incident that allegedly took place on July 19th. Twine was arrested. Jacobs received a court summons.

Jacobs took on a starter's role for the Terrapins in 2013 following season-ending injuries to starting wideouts Stefon Diggs and Deon Long. He caught 47 passes for 640 yards last season, including three touchdowns.

Twine registered 49 tackles last season while appearing in nine games.

According to the program's depth chart released on Monday, Twine is listed as a backup at inside linebacker and Jacobs is listed as a starter at wide receiver for Saturday's game against James Madison.
