Hokies kicker Journell reinstated

Virginia Tech kicker Cody Journell, who was suspended from the team following his arrest in December, has been reinstated, effective immediately, the school announced Friday.

"Cody has fulfilled all of the obligations in conjunction with his suspension and is back as an active member of the team," Virginia Tech athletic director Jim Weaver said in a prepared statement.

Journell made 14 of 17 field goals and 43 of 44 extra points last season, his first as the starting place-kicker.
