BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — University at Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack has been reinstated and will miss the opener against Georgia.
Mack had been suspended indefinitely starting last Saturday for violating an unspecified team policy. Athletic director Danny White announced Friday that the junior will only have to miss the first game.
Mack is coming off a season in which he led the Bulls with 512 sacks, 2012 tackles for a loss and five forced fumbles to earn first-team Mid-American Conference honors.
Last month, Mack was one of 84 players picked for the Bronco Nagurski Trophy watch list. The honor is given to the nation’s top defensive player.
