SALT LAKE CITY—Utah Utes wide receiver Cory Butler-Byrd has been partially reinstated to his football team, according to a press release from the school Tuesday morning. He is able to participate in practice and team activities, but is still being withheld from games at this time.
Butler-Byrd was suspended indefinitely for “personal issues” on the first day of Utah’s fall camp. He was later charged with a class A misdemeanor of criminal mischief, to which he entered into a guilty plea of abeyance on Monday. The charges will be dropped from his record conditional of proof of mental counseling and restitution payment of $1,691.50 over the next year, according to the Salt Lake Tribune’s Kyle Goon.
Butler-Byrd will not be made available to the media for comment this season, and there is no timetable for his return to game action.
