After being held out of Spring practice after his third alcohol related arrest, Floyd is now allowed to participate in "voluntary" workouts the players are currently conducting on their own.
However, the school stressed he has not been reinstated to the team.
This should not come as a surprise as a few weeks ago Head Coach Brian Kelly said Floyd would be allowed to play every game in the fall if met conditions set by the coaching staff, including "changing his life".
At that time, Kelly said he was "very optimistic" on Floyd's return based on the progress he had seen.
With Floyd, I think the Irish are a serious BCS Bowl contender. Without him, they may only improve marginally over last season.
