Army West Point junior Ahmad Bradshaw returned to practice Wednesday, hours after reports circulated that the quarterback, who started seven of the team's 12 games last year, was leaving the school.

A local newspaper report announcing Bradshaw's exit went online Tuesday night; other college football news outlets cited the piece throughout the day Wednesday. The paper later published a piece on the quarterback's return.

Army West Point athletics spokesman Matt Faulker told Army Times on Wednesday that Bradshaw's status had not changed and that the junior didn't attend Tuesday's session "due to administrative reasons." The school's official athletics Twitter account gave a shout-out to the quarterback on the same day he missed practice.

Much of the speculation regarding the report surrounded the commitment papers that must be signed by service academy cadets prior to their junior year of classes, in which they agree to five years of military service following their two remaining years of schooling. Bradshaw has reportedly agreed to the requirement

Bradshaw will compete with sophomore Chris Carter for the starting QB job. Carter started the final two games of 2015, including Army's 21-17 loss to Navy.

The Black Knights begin their 2016 season Sept. 2 on the road against the Temple Owls.
