Update, Aug. 7: Malik Simmons has been suspended from the first two games of the 2015 football season, according to a news release from the University.
Simmons will continue practicing with the team and will play in the game against Illinois on Sept. 19.
"Malik's actions did not meet the standards of the Carolina football program and he will serve a significant penalty as a result," head coach Larry Fedora said in the release. "I'm confident he will learn from it and we can put these issues in the past."
UPDATE, Aug. 6: After appearing in Orange County District Court today on marijuana and resisting arrest charges, Malik Simmons must perform 24 hours of community service, as ordered by Judge Charles Anderson.
The Associated Press reports that Simmons must complete the community service by Feb. 4 and write an apology to the arresting officer.
Simmons did not participate in team practice on Thursday.
UPDATE, Aug. 3: After UNC's first training camp practice today, head coach Larry Fedora said Malik Simmons had been reinstated to the football team for practice. Unlike earlier this preseason, the senior cornerback spent the majority of the day working with the Tar Heels' second-team defense.
