Arkansas coach says arrested players won't play
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas coach John L. Smith says three players arrested in May for burglary will not be a part of the team this season.
Receivers Marquel Wade and Maudrecus Humphrey, and tight end Andrew Peterson were arrested May 12 and charged with felony residential burglary. According to arrest reports, the three are accused of stealing textbooks, DVDs, laptops and more than $4,800 in cash from a university dormitory.
All have a trial date set for Aug. 27.
Smith confirmed Thursday that the three won't be back this season, though he did leave open the possibility they could return next year.
