STANFORD, Calif. -- Linebacker Shayne Skov has been reinstated to the Stanford football team and will serve a one-game suspension this season after he was arrested and jailed earlier this year for driving under the influence.

Coach David Shaw said Friday that Skov, a senior who missed most of the Cardinal's 2011 season with a knee injury, will sit out the season opener Aug. 31 against San Jose State. He was arrested Feb. 5.

Skov led Stanford with 84 tackles and had 7½ sacks as a sophomore, then sustained a season-ending torn ligament in his left knee in the third game last fall. Shaw said Skov is close to 100 percent healthy and that his rehab is going well.
