MADISON - University of Wisconsin officials are attempting to gather more information regarding the alleged actions of wide receivers Quintez Cephus and Danny Davis.

That led to the late decision Tuesday to postpone the scheduled post-practice media session with head coach Paul Chryst.

Cephus, who faces two charges of sexual assault stemming from an alleged incident in April and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, was suspended indefinitely Monday by UW under its student-athlete discipline policy after the charges were filed.

Davis, who according to the criminal complaint against Cephus allegedly took at least one photo of one of the two women involved, could face a team suspension and could possibly be charged with a crime.

Under state law regarding representations for depicting nudity, an individual can be charged with a felony if he or she "captures an intimate representation without the consent of the person depicted under circumstances in which he or she has a reasonable expectation of privacy, if the person knows or has a reason to know that the person who is depicted in the reproduction did not consent."

Without Cephus, UW planned to rely on wide receivers A.J. Taylor, Davis and Kendric Pryor.

If Davis is suspended and misses any games, beginning with the Aug. 31 opener against Western Kentucky, UW's depth will be tested even further.

News of the charges against Cephus first came out Saturday when he announced via Twitter he was leaving the team indefinitely because he anticipated being charged.

He wrote that he had been "wrongfully accused of unlawful conduct and I am innocent of any allegations associated with this consensual relationship."

Charges in the case were filed Monday in Dane County.
