Missouri LB Ebner returns to practice

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri linebacker Will Ebner returned to the practice field, two days after being arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Ebner, a junior, was third on the team with 78 tackles last year. He had been working with the second team but Tuesday had been demoted to third string.

A sheriff's deputy stopped Ebner at 1 a.m. Sunday after noticing his SUV swerving. An arrest report said Ebner had bloodshot eyes and incoherent speech and failed a breath-alcohol test.

Ebner was released from the county jail after posting a $500 bond, and faces a Sept. 16 court appearance.

A team spokesman says any disciplinary action would be handled internally.
