USC football: Tailback Marc Tyler will play against Utah
Tyler, the Trojans' leading rusher in 2010, practiced with the regular offense for the first time Tuesday after spending last week mainly with the scout team.
Kiffin said Tyler was reinstated because he met unspecified requirements set by the coach and Athletic Director Pat Haden.
"[He] completed all those things and hopefully he'll continue that way," Kiffin said.
Tyler left practice early and was not made available to the media.
"He's looked very good," Kiffin said. "He did [scout] team all week for us last week and was very productive down there. ... I know they beat him up down there, which is what he needed after missing camp, so he still has a lot of work to do but it's good to have a guy who's played a lot back.
"Anytime that you can add a guy who's been there, done it, they usually play better than the guys" with less experience, Kiffin said.
