Andrew Fears' Cal State Fullerton football career ended before it began when Titan Coach Gene Murphy dismissed Fears from the team Tuesday for his involvement in two recent altercations.

With a bullet lodged dangerously close to his lung and a police investigation looming, Clarence Siler's football career hangs in the balance. Siler, the Cal State Fullerton defensive end who is recovering from gunshot wounds incurred during a brawl last week, is listed in good condition at the UC Irvine Medical Center. But he is having trouble breathing because of the bullet that struck him in the shoulder, and his left thumb and index finger are numb because of a bullet that hit his wrist.
