Derek Dooley reinstates 2 Volunteers
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Volunteers coach Derek Dooley has reinstated two Volunteers players he suspended following a July bar brawl that left an off-duty police officer seriously injured.
Sophomore linebacker Greg King and sophomore defensive tackle Marlon Walls will join their teammates when they begin fall practice Wednesday. The pair has been suspended since the July 9 brawl, though their roles in the incident have never been made clear by police.
Dooley said Tuesday he's comfortable with the punishment Walls and King have served and said the pair have had good attitudes and shown remorse about the incident, which also led to defensive back Darren Myles' dismissal.
Dooley says he doesn't expect to punish anyone else unless police uncover new information in their investigation.
