Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel announced on Monday that defensive back Aarion Penton has been reinstated to the team. Per The Maneater:
Mizzou’s official depth chart listed cornerback Aarion Penton as a starter after he missed the game against Texas A&M due to suspension. Penton, a sophomore, had been suspended indefinitely Nov. 7 on suspicion of marijuana possession.
“He’s off suspension and he is back in the program,” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Monday.
Missouri plays at Tennessee this weekend and must win and beat Arkansas the following week in order to win the SEC East.
