Kiondre Thomas, one of the six Gophers football players served with a restraining order last week, had his restraining order lifted Monday, according to a court document obtained by the Star Tribune.
An alleged victim from a Sept. 2 incident petitioned for two-year restraining orders to keep KiAnte Hardin, Ray Buford, Tamarion Johnson, Dior Johnson, Carlton Djam and Thomas from TCF Bank Stadium, as well as her apartment.
Those six players were banned from the stadium for Saturday's game against Rutgers. The alleged victim is part of the Gophers game day operation. On Monday, she petitioned to have the restraining order against Thomas dismissed "upon further review of the incident."
Thomas is a freshman cornerback who has yet to play this season. The other five players have a hearing Tuesday, and their attorney, Lee Hutton, expects to have all of their restraining orders overturned.
None of the six players have been arrested or charged in connection with the alleged Sept. 2 incident. The Gophers suspended Hardin, Buford, Tamarion Johnson and Dior Johnson for three games while Minneapolis police investigated, but those players were reinstated to the team when Hennepin County announced it was declining to press charges.
On Sunday, Gophers coach Tracy Claeys said Hardin, Buford and the other players "will be active" at practice this week and available to play in Saturday's road game at Illinois.
