Walter Aikens arrested

Illinois defensive back Walter Aikens has been suspended by Ron Zook after his arrest on possession of stolen property, a Class 4 felony. Aikens, a freshman who was competing for a starting safety spot, did not practice Friday and will miss today's spring game.

Bond was being set for Aikens on Saturday morning. His suspension follows the arrest of Illini defensive tackle Lendell Buckner on residential burglary charges.

As a freshman, Aikens had 32 tackles in 10 games.
