A.C. Leonard Reinstated By Florida Football After Arrest

In February, Florida Gators tight end A.C. Leonard was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. In the wake of the news, the school suspended the player from team activities. It appears the suspension was short-lived and Leonard will now be reinstated.

The Associated Press via Sports Illustrated reports that Leonard was seen attending team practices two weeks ago and has been reinstated by the school.

Leonard practiced with the Gators on Wednesday, but coach Will Muschamp says the sophomore "still has a lot of things to work through before his status for the fall is addressed."

In a statistic that may be a bit too telling, Leonard's arrest marked the 10th arrest of a Florida player during the 15 months that Muschamp has been acting head coach of the team.
