Ebner, Brinkley return for Mizzou

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri linebacker Will Ebner and long

snapper Beau Brinkley have been reinstated from two-game

disciplinary suspensions for alcohol-related arrests.

Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday both players were participating in

all team activities in preparation for Saturday's home game against

San Diego State.

Ebner was arrested on suspicion of DWI on Aug. 22 after failing

a roadside Breathalyzer test, and Brinkley was charged with DWI a

week later.

Ebner was third on the team with 78 tackles last year and had

3.5 sacks. Brinkley is also a reserve tight end.
