May 09, 2014|The Baltimore Sun

Maryland linebacker Abner Logan has been placed on disciplinary probation by the university until April 2015, the school announced Friday.

While on probation, the rising redshirt sophomore can attend class, practice and work out with the team, but he will not be eligible to play in games.

He will have an opportunity to petition for removal of the conditions after Oct. 10. That would be midway through Maryland's season.

Logan, a native of Cambridge, Mass., had been suspended this semester for an undisclosed violation of team rules, coach Randy Edsall announced in early April.

He played in 12 games last season, most as a reserve, and made 37 tackles.

"I sincerely apologize to the University of Maryland community, my coaches, teammates, fans of Maryland Athletics and my family," Logan said in a statement released by the team. "In no way did I intend for my indiscretion to harm or damage the reputation or the esteem of the University of Maryland or its athletic department. I take full responsibility for my actions and accept the sanctions passed down by the University. Moving forward, I can only hope that I can regain the trust and confidence of those who I have thoroughly disappointed."
