Floyd to workout with squad

Though not yet reinstated, All-America candidate Michael Floyd will participate in voluntary workouts with his Irish teammates this summer.

Note: The following is a release courtesy Notre Dame athletics:

University of Notre Dame senior wide receiver Michael Floyd is able to participate in voluntary workouts this summer with the Fighting Irish football team but Floyd has not been reinstated to the team. The voluntary workouts, led by Notre Dame student-athletes and strength and conditioning exercises supervised by Notre Dame's strength and conditioning staff, began Monday afternoon.

The following is a quote from Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly:

"Michael has made steady progress towards modifying his behavior and he may participate in the voluntary workouts being conducted by his teammates as well as the summer strength and conditioning program, if he so chooses.

"However, Michael still has steps to take before he can be considered for reinstatement to our football team. If he meets the conditions I have outlined to him and he demonstrates improved decision-making skills, Michael will have the opportunity to rejoin the team for practices and games this fall. If he doesn't meet every criteria given to him, Michael will not play for Notre Dame in 2011."
