— A Duke football player is off the field and depending on the outcome of an appeal may soon be behind bars. Linebacker Brian McCormack was sentenced Friday to spend 10 days in jail and one year under supervised probation.

His lawyer has appealed the verdict.

McCormack was arrested in October for assaulting two men outside a restaurant near campus.
