After being suspended by head coach Mike Anderson on September 5th, Arkansas forward Arlando Cook has had his suspension partially lifted.
Cook was initially suspended after being charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and first-degree assault following his alleged role in an altercation in a fight on Dickson St. in Fayetteville.
When Anderson met with the media on Thursday, he announced the senior forward resumed team activities on Wednesday and will be allowed to practice. However, Cook is still suspended from games. Anderson stated it wasn’t a conversation that led to his decision.
“As you started to get information, I wasn’t privy to that early on, so we”re getting some of the information.” Anderson told the media. “He’s been out for 7, you think about 7 weeks. That’s a long time away from your team. Part of that suspension was him being away. But at the same time, I think, what has taken place I’m sure he’s remorseful for it and hopefully he can get an opportunity to move forward, as well as his team.”
The Razorbacks open their season November 10th at Bud Walton Arena against Samford.
