Linebacker Shayne Skov has been reinstated to the Stanford football team and will serve a one-game suspension this season after he was arrested and jailed earlier this year for driving under the influence.
Coach David Shaw said Friday that Skov will sit out the opener Aug. 31 against San Jose State. Skov was arrested Feb. 5.
Skov led Stanford in tackles as a sophomore but suffered a season-ending torn ligament in his left knee in the third game last fall against Arizona. Shaw said Skov's "rehab is going very well and he is close to being at 100 percent."
Skov is a Piedmont native who attended Trinity-Pawling School (N.J.).

He made reference to the AEG proposal in L.A. and Ed Roski's concept in City of Industry.
