Chizik: Auburn's Dismukes back from suspension

Posted: Updated:

Auburn coach Gene Chizik says center Reese Dismukes will play Saturday at Mississippi State. Chizik didn't say if he would reclaim his starting job.

The coach suspended Dismukes following the sophomore's arrest on a public intoxication charge, a week before the opener against Clemson.

The Lee County's sheriff's office said that the starter was released on a $300 bond. It did not offer further details.

Sophomore Tunde Fariyike started in Dismukes' place in the loss to Clemson.

Chizik says Dismukes has "done all we've asked him to do." He also says fullback Jay Prosch is back in school a day after his mother Iris, died following a battle with cancer.

Chizik says the funeral is scheduled for Thursday and Prosch plans to play Saturday at Mississippi State.
