The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a second former Baylor football player on Thursday on a warrant related to a sexual assault that allegedly occurred in Waco, Texas, in 2013. Former Bears running back Shamycheal Chatman, 23, was arrested in Houston on Thursday and was being transported to the McLennan County Jail in Waco, sources told ESPN. Chatman's arrest comes a day after former Baylor tight end Tre'Von Armstead was arrested in Port Arthur, Texas. A grand jury in Waco indicted Armstead on three second-degree felony charges of sexual assault for an alleged incident that occurred in 2013. The indictment was sealed until his arrest on Wednesday.

Three questions for the Baylor Bears this spring

Matt Rhule starts his first spring practice with holes along the lines and questions at quarterback, but Baylor's new coach promises flexibility.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor coach Matt Rhule said sophomore QB Zach Smith will get the first-team reps when the Bears begin spring practice on Saturday, but he'll rotate with Arizona grad transfer Anu Solomon and freshman Charlie Brewer. Smith gets the nod to start off based on his experience, but this should be an intriguing competition to watch this spring and Rhule didn't lay out a clear timetable for naming his starter.
