Leonard status for spring game in question

March, 30, 2012
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Tight end A.C. Leonard has rejoined the football team but his status for the spring game is still in question, Florida head coach Will Muschamp said as he addressed the media Friday.

Leonard, who practiced with the team on Monday, had been suspended since his Feb. 15 arrest on misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an altercation with his girlfriend at their Gainesville apartment.

"After six weeks of being suspended from our football team, I felt like he's done the things I've asked him to do from a standpoint of the measure that I took with him to this point," Muschamp said. "I've allowed him to practice only -- only. No decision on the fall has been made, no decision on playing has been made. He still has an awful lot of things to do in order to play for our football team.

"He's very remorseful about what happened. He made a mistake. But all he has been cleared to do is practice. I have not determined what I'm going to do with him for the spring game yet."

As a freshman Leonard totaled 99 yards on nine receptions in 2011.
