COLFAX, Wash. (AP) — A judge has cleared the way for suspended nose tackle Robert Barber to resume playing football for No. 20 Washington State.

Whitman County Superior Judge David Frazier on Wednesday granted Barber's request for a temporary stay of his suspension from the university for a fight last summer.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://apne.ws/2ghVuNW ) that the stay was granted on the condition that Barber not attempt to contact the student who was injured at a house party, use drugs or attend parties where drugs and alcohol are present.

Washington State coach Mike Leach has said Barber is welcome to rejoin the team if he is cleared to return to school.

Pullman police are still investigating the incident and no criminal charges have been filed.
