Dismissed Miami Hurricanes safety Ray-Ray Armstrong and his lawyer plan to file an injunction to get Armstrong back on the team, reports The Miami Herald. 

According to his father, Armstrong was dismissed for lying and then admitting to staying in a hotel room in Miami Beach paid by his girlfriend. His girlfriend owns a PR company that represents athletes.

Last season, Armstrong was suspended for his connection to the NCAA case regarding his relationship with former booster Nevin Shapiro.

“The underlying issue is Ray-Ray was at a hotel with his girlfriend, the girlfriend picked up charges to her personal credit card, so there is no NCAA violation,” Armstrong's attorney Matt Morgan said. “They’re thinking an agent is putting him up in the room but it turns out to be his girlfriend. You can’t avoid hanging out with your girlfriend, just because her occupation happens to be a PR person.”

Morgan said the injunction is almost complete and should be filed by the end of the week.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with the University of Miami. I hope they reconsider their decision and allow me to play football as a Hurricane this season," Armstrong said in a statement.
