PISCATAWAY — Rutgers wide receiver Ruhann Peele was arrested in late August and charged with simple assault, according to a report by NJ.com.
Peele has not appeared on the field with the team since suffering an upper-body injury during training camp. His timetable to return is unknown.
"We are aware of the situation involving Ruhann," head coach Kyle Flood said in a statement. "Due to the fact he has a pending court date, we will not comment until the legal process is complete."
Peele finished with 28 catches — tied for the lead at receiver — and added 12 tackles and an interception last season while playing both ways.
