Ohio St. Buckeyes linebacker Storm Klein practiced with the team for the first time since serving a two-game suspension. Head coach Urban Meyer said that there is a chance that he could play in Saturday's game against the California Golden Bears.

He's handled this with much humility, which I imagined he would.

Klein was originally dismissed for an arrest on domestic violence and assualt back in June. Klein was reinstated after the initial charges were dropped and he plead to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. The two game suspension came from that charge. In 2011, Klein recorded 45 total tackles, 22 solo, with one interception, one sack and one forced fumble.

The Buckeyes play the Golden Bears on Saturday in Columbus. Kickoff is scheduled for noon with television coverage on ABC.
