Rainey Rejoins No. 22 Gators After Stalking Charge

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida receiver Chris Rainey has
returned to the team after being dismissed last month following a
charge of aggravated stalking.
Coach Urban Meyer said in a statement Tuesday that Rainey is
practicing with the No. 22 Gators. Meyer said Rainey won't play
Saturday against Mississippi State, adding that "the timetable for
his return will depend on his ability to follow the guidelines we
have laid out for him."
Rainey allegedly sent a woman he used to date a threatening text
message.
Meyer expresses disappointment that Rainey violated a core value
of the program and said he "continues to pay a price for his
actions."
Rainey agreed to a plea deal on a misdemeanor charge two weeks
ago. Rainey apologized in a statement, saying he was
"embarrassed" by his actions.
