GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida tight end A.C. Leonard, suspended indefinitely following his arrest on a domestic battery charge last month, has been reinstated.

Leonard practiced with the Gators on Wednesday, but coach Will Muschamp says the sophomore "still has a lot of things to work through before his status for the fall is addressed.''

Leonard was suspended from team activities for six weeks, although he was seen attending practice two weeks ago. He was arrested Feb. 15 following an altercation with his live-in girlfriend. According to Gainesville Police, the two got into a verbal altercation and Leonard eventually pulled her by the hair and dragged her out of their apartment.

His arrest was the 10th during Muschamp's 15-month tenure.

Leonard caught eight passes for 99 yards last season.
