Petrino issued a statement Tuesday, suspending the two from the Razorbacks' opener against Western Illinois and the team's second game against Louisiana-Monroe. He said athletic department policy called for a one-game suspension, but he thought the longer suspensions were appropriate.
Wade, who played four games last year, was arrested Saturday after authorities say he nearly hit a police officer with his car. Police say the 19-year-old registered a 0.11 on a blood-alcohol. Arkansas' legal limit is 0.08.
In a separate case, Burton pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges of drunken driving and careless driving that were filed after a June traffic stop. He faces an Aug. 8 sentencing.
