In the SEC Conference Call Wednesday morning, Florida head coach Urban Meyer said that running back/wide receiver Chris Rainey will be eligible for the Georgia game on October 30th. Rainey came back to practice last week but did not play in Florida’s 10-7 loss to Mississippi State.
The junior was arrested on aggravated stalking charges earlier this season after he threatened his girlfriend via text message. Meyer has said that Rainey will have to follow the terms of a contract he signed with the team and the university detailing the steps of his return to the squad, steps not including the anger management classes and other work Rainey is required to do as part of his criminal case.
Rainey is the 25th player arrested in Meyer’s tenure in Gainesville.
