Running back Jeremy Hill reinstated by LSU

The Tigers' leading returning rusher is back with the team after a lengthy suspension.

LSU reinstated running back Jeremy Hill, head coach Les Miles said Monday. Hill had been suspended since being arrested following a bar fight in April. Video that clearly showed him assaulting another man surfaced, and Hill pleaded guilty to the charges. The running back avoided jail time, and Miles at that point had left the door open for a possible return.

Hill, who practiced with the team Monday, spoke briefly with the media but did not take questions.

Hill led the Tigers in 2012 with 755 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns, and while LSU has a reasonable amount of experience behind him, his absence definitely would have been a blow to the offense.
