FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU officials say defensive end Devonte Fields remains "separated" from the university, meaning the preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year is still barred from campus and all school activities.
Fields last month surrendered to authorities on a misdemeanor assault warrant amid allegations that he threatened his ex-girlfriend and punched her.
The university released a statement Tuesday night after several reports that Fields posted on his protected Twitter account that he was meeting with university officials. The school didn't publicly acknowledge any meeting, and only said the student-athlete's status was unchanged.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, citing an unnamed TCU official, reported later Tuesday night that Fields is "unlikely to be allowed" to rejoin the Horned Frogs.
