Endres reinstated

Former Trinity High School quarterback Cody Endres (pictured) has been reinstated to the University of Connecticut football team. Endres, a redshirt junior, and guard Erik Kuraczea were suspended Aug. 18 for a violation of athletic department policies. Both players will be in uniform Saturday when the Huskies host Buffalo.

"I talked to both young men on Sunday and told them exactly where they stood," UConn coach Randy Edsall told the Hartford Courant. "I asked them what they learned through this experience and was satisfied with their response. There was remorse. They understood in terms of how much they not only let themselves down, but they let their families down and most especially let their teammates down.

"I would expect both of those young men to be better young men for this. It should have never happened in the first place. There should have never been a suspension in the first place, but both young men will be better for this and I would be extremely disappointed if it wasn't this way."

Endres played in seven games last season, starting six. He completed 98 of 154 passes for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.

Edsall did not rule out replacing current starting quarterback Zach Frazer with Endres for stretches Saturday. UConn is off to a 1-2 start, losing last week to Temple.
