LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Everything appears to be back to normal for former Barbe Buccaneer Janzen Jackson.

The University of Tennessee football star has been reinstated to the team.  Head coach Lane Kiffin says Jackson will start in Tennessee's season finale against Kentucky.

Jackson was arrested along with two Tennessee teammates for attempted armed robbery back on November 12th.  Charges against Jackson were dropped on November 23rd.

The other two players involved, Nu'Keese Richardson and Mike Edwards have both been dismissed from the program.  Both are still facing attempted armed robbery charges.
