University of Notre Dame officials say senior wide receiver, Michael Floyd, can practice in the voluntary summer workouts, which started on Monday, but he has not yet been reinstated to the team.

The voluntary workouts are led by Notre Dame student-athletes with strength and conditioning exercises supervised by Notre Dame's staff.

Notre Dame head football coach, Brian Kelly had this to say about the senior:

“Michael has made steady progress towards modifying his behavior and he may participate in the voluntary workouts being conducted by his teammates as well as the summer strength and conditioning program, if he so chooses. However, Michael still has steps to take before he can be considered for reinstatement to our football team. If he meets the conditions I have outlined to him and he demonstrates improved decision-making skills, Michael will have the opportunity to rejoin the team for practices and games this fall. If he doesn’t meet every criteria given to him, Michael will not play for Notre Dame in 2011.”

Floyd was suspended from the after being arrested on March 20th for a DUI.

Police say he had a blood alcohol level of .19, more than double Indiana's legal limit.

In early May, Magistrate Brian Steinke entered a not guilty plea on Floyd's behalf.

Floyd's status hearing is on Tuesday, June 7th.
