Suspended Nebraska running back Lawrence Phillips could be reinstated within a month if he takes steps to control his anger, Coach Tom Osborne said Monday.

Phillips, a junior who rushed for 359 yards and seven touchdowns in the second-ranked Cornhuskers' first two games, was suspended Sept. 10 after being charged with hitting his ex-girlfriend.

Osborne said Phillips, who has pleaded innocent to misdemeanor charges of assault, trespassing and destruction of property, is undergoing counseling.
