Florida State running back Dalvin Cook will have his off the field issues resolved before the season starts. Cook’s trial date is now August 24 after a Leon County judge approved the motion. The initial date of his trial was September 2, which is three days before FSU opens their season against Texas Tech. He’s facing a misdemeanor battery charge after allegedly punching a woman in the face at a bar in June.
Cook is still suspended and FSU will wait until the outcome of the case to decide what to do. He has maintained his innocence through his attorneys and has stated that he will not accept a plea deal.
Cook ran for 1,008 yards on 170 carries and eight touchdowns as a freshman last season.
