LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville says linebacker Daniel Cobb has been cleared of a felony burglary charge stemming from his arrest in August.

Cobb, who started practicing with the 18th-ranked Red Raiders on Sunday night, was expected to play against TCU on Saturday.

The junior was arrested Aug. 19 and charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. A police report showed that an officer responding to the burglary call found evidence of forced entry into an apartment and Cobb assaulting the occupant.

Tuberville said Cobb committed ``no wrongdoing whatsoever.'' Calls to the Lubbock County district attorney's office were not returned Monday.

Cobb started seven games last season and made 70 tackles, third best on the team.
