Two University of Oklahoma football players were arrested Sunday morning for possession of marijuana.

Cleveland County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Meghan McCormick says deputies arrested wide receiver Jalen Saunders and defensive back Cortez Johnson around 2 a.m. during a traffic stop in Norman.

McCormick says both Saunders and Johnson were booked into the Cleveland County Jail and were released between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. She didn't know if either Saunders or Johnson had an attorney or when they're due in court for an initial appearance.

The arrests come after the No. 12 Sooners (10-2, 8-1 Big 12) beat TCU 24-17 on Saturday. Team spokesman Pete Moris declined to comment Sunday.
