Williams Cleared to Report to Dolphins

"Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has been cleared by the NFL to report Sunday for the start of training camp, a year and a day after he abruptly retired.

Williams decided to apply for reinstatement after sitting out last season. He still faces a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse program.

"If he decides to return, Ricky Williams is eligible to report on the first day of training camp without incurring a further violation of the substance abuse program," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday. "His four-game suspension for violating the program would be served over the first four games of the regular season."

Williams acknowledged shortly after retiring that he failed drug tests and faced a suspension for testing positive three times for marijuana. A court later found the 2002 NFL rushing champion in breach of contract by retiring, and ordered him to repay the team $8.6 million."
