MSU's Chris L. Rucker travels to Iowa
Zero-tolerance policy? Really?
What kind of zero-tolerance policy allows two players to come back on the day they're released from jail, asks ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg in his conference blog.
The school hasn't announced whether he will play Saturday.
Rucker was reinstated to the team Thursday after missing two games and serving eight days in jail for a probation violation following what was initially a drunken driving charge. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving.
Spartans coach Mark Dantonio said Rucker paid team and legal consequences for his poor decision, adding he didn't deserve a lifetime banishment from the program.
Rucker was sentenced to 12 months of probation and 150 hours of community service for assault last year for his role in a fight on campus.
