ORLANDO, Fla. - Starting offensive tackle Jake Vermiglio and backup defensive tackles J.R. Sweezy and Markus Kuhn will play for N.C. State in today's game at Central Florida, N.C. State sports information director Annabelle Myers said.
Coach Tom O'Brien held all three players out of the Sept. 4 opener against Western Carolina, but did not explain why. They were charged in April with possession of drug paraphernalia, simple possession of marijuana, and maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of using a controlled substance.
A judge dismissed the charges after ruling that investigators improperly searched the players' apartment.
N.C. State backup quarterback Mike Glennon is warming up with the team after suffering a left knee injury against Western Carolina. Myers said she did not have an update on Glennon's status.
