COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State linebacker Storm Klein, kicked off the team when he was charged with domestic violence, has been reinstated by coach Urban Meyer after pleading guilty to a lesser charge earlier this week.

Klein, a senior who started 10 games last year, will not be allowed to play until at least the third game of the season. The No. 18 Buckeyes open Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio).

Klein was involved in an altercation with the mother of his child in July.

In a statement, Meyer said, "The charges that would have violated our core values have been totally dismissed." He said he re-assessed the situation and allowed Klein back.

Klein pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge Tuesday.
