After serving his two-game suspension, junior Mike Ford is expected to play on Saturday against Charleston Southern, USF coach Jim Leavitt said after Monday’s practice.

Leavitt said he doesn’t know how much Ford will play, however.

“Mo Plancher had a good game (Saturday).  Ashton Samuels is awfully good.  Lindsey Lamar is playing well.  He’s got some guys he’s got to compete with,” Leavitt said.

Ford, who was suspended for the first two games of the season for a violation of team rules, acknowledged his wrongdoing, Leavitt said.
