HOUSTON -- Arkansas Razorbacks senior forward Arlando Cook was reinstated to the team and dressed out for the first time this season for Saturday night's game against Houston, but he didn't play.

Razorbacks Coach Mike Anderson suspended Cook for disciplinary reasons after he was arrested Sept. 2 and charged with misdemeanor first-degree assault, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

"We got everything resolved, so he's back in good standing and ready to move forward now," Anderson said. "He's done all the things we asked him to do and the law has taken its course.

"Obviously, we're going to do our due diligence to make sure he does what he's supposed to do."

Cook resumed practicing with the team in late October, but he hadn't been cleared by Anderson to play in games until Saturday night.
