The NCAA reinstated Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Friday and he is eligible to play after serving a two-game suspension, the school announced.

Clinton-Dix was indefinitely suspended two weeks ago for a violation of team rules.

Saban would not comment about what Clinton-Dix did to specify the violation, but it was reported Clinton-Dix accepted an impermissible benefit from a member of Alabama’s staff.

Clinton-Dix reportedly borrowed between $100 and $300 from Alabama assistant strength coach Corey Harris.

Clinton-Dix did not play in Alabama’s victories over Georgia State and Kentucky.

Clinton-Dix, a junior, has 24 tackles in four games this season. Last season, he tied for the SEC lead with five interceptions.

Glad they sat him out and glad he's back. I'm more curious in the punishment for the coach who was really the one who should have known better.
