Suspended Mich. St. players allowed to rejoin team
EAST LANSING, MI – Several of the Michigan State football players suspended from the Alamo Bowl because they were involved in an on-campus fight have been allowed to rejoin the team
for some offseason activities.
Spartans coach Mark Dantonio said Wednesday that he will allow the legal process for those players to take its course. That could affect players' future status.
Seven players, in addition to two permanently kicked off the team, face misdemeanor assault charges related to a Nov. 22 fight with members of a campus fraternity.
Starting defensive back Chris L. Rucker and receivers B.J. Cunningham and Mark Dell are among those allowed to take part in some team activities. Some seldom-used players are transferring.
The short-handed Spartans lost to Texas Tech 41-31 in the Jan. 2 bowl game.
