UNC reinstates suspended CB Simmons for 1st practice

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina started preseason practice with suspended cornerback Malik Simmons back on the team.

Coach Larry Fedora said Monday he reinstated Simmons, who had been held out of all football-related activities since July 24, after he was arrested that week in Chapel Hill on a resisting arrest charge. He also was arrested May 16 on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession.

Fedora said he would wait for the legal process to play out before deciding on disciplinary action.

"And there will be, obviously, consequences in the future," Fedora added.
