Cyler Miles is a Washington Huskie once again.

Washington announced Wednesday that Miles had been reinstated to the team. Miles was originally suspended in February following an incident that also involved Washington receiver Demore'ea Stringfellow. The two Huskies allegedly assaulted a man with "multiple punches" following the Super Bowl.

No charges were filed against Miles in connection to the incident, and shortly after that announcement, Washington coach Chris Petersen made it sound as though Miles could possibly return to the team.

And now he has.

Which is good news for both Miles and the Huskies. While he missed the entirety of spring practice, Miles was considered the front-runner to be Washington's starting quarterback next season following the graduation of Keith Price. While Miles will no doubt have a lot of work to do to earn that status again, his presense on the roster gives Petersen a viable option.

As for Demore'ea Stringfellow, in the same release from the school announcing Miles' return, the school announced Stringfellow will transfer.
