Suspended Alabama players reinstated for final regular-season game
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The NCAA reinstated five Alabama players who were suspended for improper receipt of textbooks, making them eligible for the regular-season finale at Auburn.
The four-game suspension for violating rules covering free books for course work will wrap up with Louisiana-Monroe games on Saturday. The NCAA informed Alabama of the decision before the game, a university statement said.
The group includes starting offensive linemen Antoine Caldwell and Marlon Davis and No. 2 rusher Glen Coffee, along with reserve defensive backs Chris Rogers and Marquis Johnson.
The NCAA ruling followed a report submitted this week by the university regarding its ongoing investigation into the case.
