Rutgers All-Big Ten receiver Leonte Carroo has been charged with assault under domestic violence in connection with an unspecified matter after the team's game last weekend.
The team announced Sunday that the senior captain was suspended indefinitely. Then officials said Monday he had been arrested.
About two hours before the news of his arrest was released, coach Kyle Flood was asked about if and when Carroo might be able to return.
"I don't anticipate any change in status as of right now," Flood said. "And it would be hard for me to answer the rest of that until I had more details just because it's a hypothetical right now."
Rutgers Police Chief Kenneth Cop said in a statement that the Saturday incident was outside the team's training and administrative building. Cop did not release further details.
The arrest and suspension are the latest stains on a program that has seen six other players kicked off the team this month after being arrested.
"As the head coach, everything ultimately reflects on you and it's part of the job. If you shy away from that, you probably shouldn't do the job," Flood said. "But I'm very comfortable that the people that know our program, the people who are invested in our program, and the people that spend time with our program know the quality and the high quality of the young men that we have down in that locker room right now."
Before the seven arrests, Rutgers began investigating Flood for possible improper contact with a teacher about a player's grade.

After the game, video caught Sooners linebacker and team captain Eric Striker shouting foul language directed at the SEC before leaving the field. There was also a photo of safety Hatari Byrd with his left arm raised and middle finger extended toward the crowd.
