Chris L. Rucker Reinstated

Chris L. Rucker's jail sentence for his probation violation ended today, and he has since been been reinstated to the team.  His status for Saturday's game against Iowa is still uncertain; Jim Comparoni tweeted this statement earlier regarding his status:

It sounds like Rucker is going to play on saturday. Dantonio said, "that's up to Chris. There is risk involved."

What that risk is, I have no idea. I don't believe he'll be 100% after eight days in jail, but a Rucker at 80% could be better than Darqueze Dennard at 100%.

Anyway, I can see both sides of this issue.  For those wanting him to play he's already missed two games and practice time, one could argue that's punishment enough.  On the other hand, if one of the conditions of your probation stipulates that you can't drink, then DON'T DRINK WHEN YOU'RE ON PROBATION.  We'll most likely find out more information soon on Coach Dantonio's radio show tonight.

EDIT: Coach Dantonio's press release can be found here.  It's mostly fluff, so I won't bother reposting any of it.
