Leach Welcomes Suspended Player Back Onto Ship

    Texas Tech guard and team captain Brandon Carter is back from his suspension for violating team rules.

    Tech spokeman Chris Cook said Carter, also known for his colorful mohawk, practiced Sunday for the first time in more than a week.

    Tech hasn't released details of what led to the suspension. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported Carter threw his helmet and loudly criticized coaches after a Sept. 19 loss at Houston, but Cook told The Associated Press he couldn't confirm that report.

    Carter was one of the Tech players who had a Twitter page before coach Mike Leach banned them, but the suspension was unrelated.

    Tech beat New Mexico 48-28 last weekend and faces Kansas State at home Saturday.
