MADISON, Wis. - Police have arrested three suspects in the assault on Wisconsin running back Montee Ball.
Ball sustained a concussion when he was attacked by several men near campus in Madison on Aug. 1.
A police report says three 21-year-old Madison men were arrested Tuesday. All are facing battery charges but haven't been formally charged.
Police have said the attack may have been related to an altercation at a house party that Ball attended a few days earlier. The police report says detectives have no evidence suggesting Ball was involved in the fight but that it's still being investigated.
Ball, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, has denied any involvement in the fight. The senior says he hopes to be ready for the season opener.
