Tennessee head coach Phillip Fulmer announced Friday that sophomore running back LaMarcus Coker has been reinstated to the team. However, he will miss the Vols' season opener at California.
Coker will be facing his last strike at UT after twice violating the school's substance abuse policy. He rushed for 6.4 yards per carry as a freshman, scoring five touchdowns.
Coker will return to the lineup in Week 2 vs. Southern Miss.
