LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California has suspended sophomore linebackers Osa Masina and Don Hill from team activities while the players are under investigation for sexual assault.

USC coach Clay Helton made the announcement during his weekly conference call Tuesday.

Masina and Hill already had been barred from games, but allowed to participate in practices and team meetings.

Masina initially was suspended before the Trojans' season opener against Alabama in Texas. Hill made the trip to Texas with the team, but was sent home a day later for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Masina and Hill are under investigation for an alleged assault July 14 at an off-campus apartment, court documents say. Masina also is under investigation for an alleged assault on the same woman July 26 in Utah, his home state.
