Tuaua and Petties-Wilson were suspended from the team just less a month ago after an off-campus incident on Sept. 4, in which they allegedly assaulted a TCU student and stole a case of Keystone Light beer. The two were arrested by Fort Worth police Sept. 22 on a felony complaint of robbery and bodily injury.
Head coach Gary Patterson said in his post-practice interview Wednesday that Tuaua and Petties-Wilson had finished the university’s discipline process on Tuesday. Patterson said they have been cleared only by the university.
Holly Ellman, associate director of communications at TCU, confirmed that Tuaua and Petties-Wilson have completed TCU’s disciplinary hearing process.
Patterson did not state whether or not the two will play this weekend.
“For both my student-athletes and the other students, I’m just sad that the situation happened,” Patterson said. “Hopefully my guys learn from it.”
Tuaua and Petties-Wilson missed the past three games as part of their suspensions.
