The Oklahoma Sooners cornerback was identified as a suspect in an arrest warrant issued on Tuesday. Cobb was believed to be in connection with several incidents of armed robbery that occurred in a three-day span in Waco and Bellmead, Texas, last week.

Cobb’s attorney, John Lewis, addressed the warrant with the Waco Tribune-Herald Tuesday, telling the paper Cobb was making arrangements to turn himself in.

University of Oklahoma athletics spokesman Rowdy Gilbert announced that Cobb was “suspended indefinitely from all athletics participation,” after learning about the warrant. “The University will review the matter further, consistent with its student conduct process,” Gilbert added.
