Oregon’s Alonso reinstated to team
Junior linebacker set to play in Saturday’s home opener
EUGENE, Ore. -- Suspended Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso has been reinstated for Saturday’s home opener against Nevada.
Alonso was suspended indefinitely by Ducks coach Chip Kelly following an alcohol-related offense in the offseason.
He was arrested in May after he broke into a stranger’s home and was discovered sleeping in a bed there. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal mischief, and was sentenced to two years of probation, 200 hours of community service and alcohol treatment.
The junior missed all of last season after he was suspended for a separate alcohol-related offense.
