The NCAA reinstated Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Friday and he is eligible to play after serving a two-game suspension, the school announced.

Clinton-Dix was indefinitely suspended two weeks ago for a violation of team rules.

Saban would not comment about what Clinton-Dix did to specify the violation, but it was reported Clinton-Dix accepted an impermissible benefit from a member of Alabama's staff.

Clinton-Dix reportedly borrowed between $100 and $300 from Alabama assistant strength coach Corey Harris.

Clinton-Dix did not play in Alabama's victories over Georgia State and Kentucky.
