AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has reinstated wide receiver D’haquille Williams from suspension.

Williams returned to practice Thursday after missing nearly a week for an undisclosed disciplinary issue.

Malzahn says the preseason All-Southeastern Conference pick started at the bottom of the depth chart and will have to work his way back up.

The coach says his star receiver “took care of his business off the field” and is trying to earn his teammates’ and coaches’ respect.

Williams was also suspended for the Outback Bowl against Wisconsin.

He caught 45 passes for 730 yards last season despite missing three games.

The junior college transfer is rated as a potential high NFL draft pick after returning for his senior season.
