Graham, Street, Pitts will play vs. ND

Pitt released a statement Friday on the status of receiver Devin Street, running back Ray Graham and cornerback Lafayette Pitts, each charged with assault and conspiracy.

Each player has denied involvement in the alleged incident that took place Oct. 21, and each will play Saturday against No. 3 Notre Dame.

From Pitt:

"The University of Pittsburgh Athletic Department was recently made aware of a police report relating to an incident allegedly involving three of our football student-athletes on October 21. Those individuals have denied any involvement with the situation and have offered to speak with authorities, although to date they have not been questioned or received any court documents. We take matters of player discipline very seriously and will continue to cooperate with any investigation. However, we will not, and hope others will not, rush to judgment on these misdemeanor allegations. All three players will remain active members of our program while we gain more clarity on this situation."
