BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- LSU coach Les Miles says players have "been involved in behavior that's unacceptable to me" after starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson and several unidentified teammates were implicated in a fight at a local bar early Friday morning.

Miles addressed the media about the incident for the first time Saturday. A group of 22 players who make up the team's Unity Council accompanied Miles for a terse 6 1/2-minute session that included an apology from senior offensive lineman Josh Dworaczyk.

Miles says: "I can tell you that the last couple of days have been miserable for us, that we've been involved in behavior that's unacceptable to me, certainly unacceptable to our team -- guys that broke team rules and violated curfew."

Miles says a "relatively large group" was involved in the incident, mentioning senior lineman T-Bob Hebert. Miles says all team members were accounted for at a 10:30 p.m. curfew check Thursday night.

No charges have been filed, nor have there been any arrests. The Baton Rouge Police Department's investigation was ongoing Saturday.
