BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (AP) -- LSU junior safety Jalen Mills has been reinstated to the team after his charge of second-degree battery was reduced to misdemeanor simple battery Monday.

Mills, who has been a two-year starter, allegedly punched a woman near his apartment last May. After his arrest in June, LSU coach Les Miles suspended Mills indefinitely.

Mills started the first 25 games of his career at cornerback before being moved to safety for the Outback Bowl against Iowa. The move became permanent during spring practice.

Monday was the first day of August drills for the Tigers. Mills worked in the afternoon session. Projected starters practiced in the morning.

Miles says Mills continues to be disciplined "in house" and "will get some extra conditioning as part of his situation."
