Nebraska sophomore defensive tackle Chase Rome has returned to the team a week after leaving.

Huskers coach Bo Pelini said Thursday that Rome has been practicing with the team all week and will be available for Saturday's game against Idaho State.

Rome left the team following a Sept. 8 loss to UCLA, and Pelini said last week that the lineman's "personal goals and personal perception of where he should be on this football team doesn't match the team goals."

Pelini said Thursday that Rome "got through some issues and he's ready to come back."

Rome recorded four tackles, including one for a loss, in the first two games this season for No. 25 Nebraska. He stepped in for the injured Jared Crick in 2011 and had 13 tackles and a sack in 10 games (including two starts).
