BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux returned from a suspension, and hopes to be allowed soon to practice with the team.
LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette said Thursday that there is no timetable for Perrilloux, who finished last season as the expected heir apparent for the starting job, to return to the field.
``He's no longer suspended, which means he has some privileges back, but one of the privileges he's not been able to regain is the ability to practice with the team,'' Bonnette said.
LSU coach Les Miles suspended Perrilloux indefinitely in February, shortly before spring practice began, for unspecified team violations.
Perrilloux's former high school coach, who remains close to the quarterback and his family, has said Perrilloux missed a mandatory team meeting, then missed classes to attend his father's funeral without notifying coaches.
It was the third suspension for Perrilloux, who was considered the favorite to succeed Matt Flynn as first-string quarterback after leading LSU to two victories as a starter - including the Southeastern Conference championship game - when Flynn, a senior, was injured during the 2007 season.
Perrilloux was among the most coveted high school quarterback prospects in the country when he joined the Tigers. He appeared to be fulfilling his promise in 2007, after redshirting in 2005 and playing sparingly as a third-stringer in 2006.
In May 2007 he was suspended from the team indefinitely after he was cited for trying to illegally get on a riverboat casino in Baton Rouge by using his older brother's driver's license. He was reinstated in August.
In October, the week before the Alabama game, he was barred from practice for his role in a nightclub brawl.
