CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- The Coast Guard says it is suspending at sundown the search for two NFL players and another man whose boat
capsized off Florida's Gulf Coast.
The Coast Guard said Tuesday it doesn't believe anyone is on the surface of the water.
Crews had narrowed their search for Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former University of South Florida player William Bleakley after finding a survivor Monday.
Former South Florida player Nick Schuyler was found clutching to the boat's hull.
Schuyler told the Coast Guard that the boat was anchored when it capsized Saturday in high seas.
