Missouri RB Trevon Walters suspended after arrest

The Missouri Tigers are looking to have a decent 2016 season this year after going 5-7 in 2015 and losing head coach Gary Pinkel, who resigned due to health concerns. However, they will be down a running back going into the season after Trevon Walters was suspended following his arrest.

Friday afternoon, Walters was arrested for alleged stealing and two counts of fraudulent use of a credit device. There is no telling how much was charged on the credit card, but anything more than $750 is a Class E felony in the state of Missouri.

Walters, who redshirted the 2015 season while he was dealing with a knee injury suffered in spring practices, was indefinitely suspended by the Tigers after his arrest.

This could be a big blow for the Tigers, but Walters is one of six scholarship running backs on the roster.

He was a three-star member of the Tigers’ 2015 roster and he could play a big role for the team if he is still with them this year. Missouri opens the season Sept. 3 against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
