TCU reinstates players facing felony robbery charges

TCU has reinstated defensive end Mike Tuaua and wide receiver Andre Petties-Wilson from suspension after the two players were arrested last week on felony robbery charges.

Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson said the players were cleared by the school's judicial committee and have returned to practice.

Tuaua and Petties-Wilson are accused of beating three students outside of a Sept. 4 party and robbing them of a case of beer.

Patterson defended Tuaua during a news conference the day after the arrest, and took a shot at rival Baylor in the process.

Tuaua is a senior and started five games for TCU last season. He was expected to play a big role on the team's defense this year. Petties-Wilson is a backup as a redshirt freshman. TCU, ranked fourth in the country, hosts Texas on Saturday.
