USC reinstates suspended RB Marc Tyler
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California has reinstated Marc Tyler after the suspended tailback missed one game and much of training camp for a series of disciplinary problems culminating in a rant on TMZ.
Coach Lane Kiffin announced Tyler's reinstatement after Tuesday's practice. Tyler is likely to play Saturday against Utah.
The Trojans' leading rusher last season met several unspecified requirements from Kiffin and athletic director Pat Haden to earn reinstatement.
Tyler was suspended indefinitely in July after TMZ's cameras recorded him outside a West Hollywood nightclub implying the Trojans pay their players.
Tyler returned to practice last month, working mostly with the Trojans' scout team. He was back with the USC offense Tuesday.
