OU: running back Joe Mixon won't report for football activities

As the investigation into Joe Mixon's role in an apparent assault in Norman last week, the University of Oklahoma says he will not participate in team activities.

The University of Oklahoma's Athletics Department made the announcement Wednesday evening. They did not call it a suspension.

Police said they were called to investigate an assault there just after 2:30 a.m.Norman police say Mixon was an "involved party" in the incident but stopped short of calling him a suspect. Police say Mixon and a 20-year-old female got into an altercation and it turned physical and ended with the woman having injuries to her face.When police arrived, Mixon was not at the scene.A police report filed by Norman officers said the woman was intoxicated and was bleeding from the mouth.More info: Norman Police release 911 call involving OU running back Joe MixonMore info: Mixon's attorney releases statement in response to accusations
