TCU redshirt sophomore DE Devonte Fields "has been separated from the University pending results of an investigation into the allegations against him," according to a statement from the school.
The announcement is in reaction to the news that Fields is a suspect in a domestic disturbance call stemming from a Sunday morning incident in Fort Worth, Texas. This is not Fields' first off-field incident, and TCU has taken a hard stand as of late in similar cases. It is difficult to doubt Fields' talent, but his future with the school likely hinges on the investigation. Jul 22 - 1:28 PM

TCU redshirt sophomore DE Devonte Fields is a suspect in a domestic disturbance call stemming from a Sunday morning incident in Fort Worth, Texas, according to Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin.

"While no charges have been filed, an investigation into the nature of the disturbance is expected to be completed in the next few days," Getlin adds. This is not Fields' first off-field incident, as he was suspended for the first game and part of the second in 2013. TCU head coach Gary Patterson even questioned Field's selection as the preseason defensive player of the year. He is quite a talent, however.

CBS Sport's Dane Brugler believes TCU red-shirt sophomore DE Devonte Fields could be the "top NFL prospect out of TCU since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001."

"He beats blocks with his natural athleticism as the game comes easy to him. Fields' development in 2014 is crucial to his NFL future, already showing high first round potential as an impact pass rusher," Brugler wrote. As a true freshman, the TCU prospect led the Horned Frogs with 18.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. After being suspended for the first two games of the season he was then limited in action, before injuring his foot and ending his season. Now that Fields is fully healthy, he'll get an opportunity to top his breakout freshman performance. If Fields can work on his technique and show evaluators that he can start converting speed to power, he'll be sure to raise his stock during this upcoming season.

NFL.com's Bryan Fischer believes TCU junior DE Devonte Fields will turn "back into the terror he was in 2012 with a big season."

Fields is coming off a nightmare season derailed by injuries and a suspension. In January, he was attacked and robbed at gunpoint. The junior was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman two years ago, so all the tools are there for a breakthrough. If he reverts to his 2012 form, Fields will likely bolt for the NFL after the season.

Talented TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields was attacked and robbed at his off-campus home on Tuesday.

The incident involved three suspects, and "one of the suspects hit Fields on the top of the head with a black semi-automatic pistol and pushed him into" the defensive end's house, according to the Fort Worth Police Department incident report. Two of the suspects then started assaulting Fields and another later pointed his gun at the defensive end and threatened to kill him. Five shots were reportedly fired in the air. Fields told police he did not want to press charges. The sophomore has a small history of off-field incidents, which led to a suspension, but this is serious stuff.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields will have surgery to repair a foot injury and miss the remainder of the season.

Fields has missed time since the end of September with the injury, and it was considered "serious" at the time. He missed time due to a suspension earlier in the season, so Fields will apply for a medical redshirt and return next year as a redshirt sophomore. We doubt it matters, since Fields will likely jump to the NFL after next season. He is talented enough.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields has been ruled out for Saturday's game against SMU with a foot injury, as expected.

News broke this week that Fields' foot injury is considered "serious," so his status for games in the coming weeks will be questionable. When able to play Fields is a stud, but his off-field actions are questionable. He was suspended for seven quarters this season and still has to make up for the eighth.

One source told TCU beat writer Stefan Stevenson that sophomore DE Devonte Fields' foot injury is "serious."

The injury occurred against Texas Tech, and head coach Gary Patterson has been very cautious when asked if Fields will play against SMU. The stud sophomore was suspended for a game and a half earlier in the season, so a long absence could make his 2013 season a waste. When actually playing, Fields is one of the top sophomores in the country.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson would not say if sophomore DE Devonte Fields will play against SMU.

Fields is dealing with a foot injury. The stud sophomore missed time due to suspension earlier in the season, so hopefully this injury doesn't slow him down too much. Keep in mind that Patterson does not usually comment on injuries, so his curtness on Fields' status is nothing new.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields totaled three tackles, including two for a loss, in a 20-10 loss to Texas Tech on Thursday.

Fields played in the second half last week against SE Louisiana, but this was his first matchup against worthwhile competition. The sophomore is one of the top players at the position in the country, but won't be draft eligible until 2015.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields will start on Thursday against Texas Tech, coach Gary Patterson announced.

Fields was suspended for the season opener against LSU and the first half of Saturday's game against SE Louisiana for violating team policy over the summer. Fields won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors last season as a true freshman, recording 18.5 tackles for loss (53 total), 10 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception in 13 starts. As a true sophomore, Fields, who was ranked by ESPN.com Big 12 blogger David Ubben as the third-best player in the Big 12 before the season, is not eligible for the 2014 draft.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields was allowed to take the field during the second half against SE Louisiana on Saturday.

Fields was suspended for the season opener against LSU and during the first half of this contest for violating team policy this summer. Today's game against an FCS opponent is much closer than it should be, but the star sophomore defensive end's presence could help the outcome.

TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields is listed in the starting lineup on the updated depth chart for Saturday's game against SE Louisiana.

Field was initially suspended for the first two games of the season after violating team policy during the offseason, and even with this alteration head coach Gary Patterson said there is no change in Fields' status. Patterson made Fields suit up for last weekend's game against LSU but did not play the stud sophomore. The Horned Frogs face Texas Tech after SE Louisiana, and Fields could really make an impact against Kliff Kingsbury's offense.

ESPN.com Big 12 blogger David Ubben ranks TCU sophomore DE Devonte Fields as the third-best player in the conference.

Fields won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors last season as a true freshman, recording 18.5 tackles for loss (53 total), 10 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception in 13 starts. Fields, who was suspended for the first two games of the season for a violation of team policy, will miss contests against LSU (Aug. 31 in Arlington) and Southeastern Louisiana (Sept. 7 in Fort Worth). He returns for a Thursday night showcase game, on Sept. 12 in Lubbock against Texas Tech. As a true sophomore, Fields is not eligible for the 2014 draft.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl thinks TCU DE Devonte Fields is making a strong case to be listed among the top 10 true sophomores in the country.

Fields displays nice instincts and hand use, according to Weidl. The sophomore will miss the first two games of the season after being suspended for a violation of team policy. His talent is outstanding, however, and Fields has only gotten strong this offseason. He is not eligible for the 2014 draft.
