Florida Spring Football: A.C. Leonard Still Faces Suspension, Says Will Muschamp

The Florida Gators reinstated tight end A.C. Leonard to the team after he missed much of the spring due to his early-offseason violence arrest, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's all the way back. Will Muschamp indicated Thursday morning that Leonard will miss some game time this year, though how much all depends.

Muschamp, to Mike Bianchi:

"He will participate in the fall. How much, I don't know," Muschamp said. "He's going to determine that from the standpoint of how he behaves. We all make mistakes, and he obviously made a huge mistake. And he has some things he's gotta work through for me that have nothing to do with anything else than making good choices and decisions.

"But there's gonna be a suspension in the fall, and he's gonna determine how long it's gonna be by how he acts from here to August."

Nothing's set in stone there, other than Muschamp saying "there's gonna a be a suspension in the fall."

Leonard's currently on six months probation after pleading no contest to a simple domestic battery charge. He returned to Gators practice last week.
