Michael Floyd took another step in returning to the football field Wednesday, and this time, it was in the court room.
The suspended receiver pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving and was sentenced to a year of probation, The Associated Press reported.
Floyd received a one-year suspended jail sentence as part of a plea agreement. Under the agreement, Floyd is not allowed to drive for 90 days and will have an ignition device installed on his vehicle for six months that won't allow it to start if his blood-alcohol level is too high when he is allowed to drive again, according to the AP.
Floyd, 21, was also fined $200 and will have to attend a victim impact panel to hear from people whose family members were killed in drunken driving accidents.
Floyd was arrested March 20 after running a stop sign near the main entrance at Notre Dame. He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent, more than double Indiana's legal limit for driving, according to prosecutors.
Floyd, who was cited for underage drinking in 2009 and 2010, was suspended from the Irish football team after the arrest by coach Brian Kelly. But the 6-foot-3, 227-pounder has been allowed to participate in voluntary workouts this and strength and conditioning exercises supervised by staff this summer.
Floyd holds the school record for touchdown catches (28) and ranks second in school history in catches (171) and third in receiving yards (2,539).
Floyd had faced a maximum sentence of a year in jail. A charge of running a stop sign was dismissed.
