Michael Sam confirms return to Montreal Alouettes

After leaving Montreal Alouettes training camp abruptly earlier this month, Michael Sam has returned to his new home.

Sam abruptly left the club on June 12 for "personal reasons," without any further explanation.

Sam's departure came three weeks after he inked a two-year contract with the Alouettes, becoming the first openly gay player to sign in the CFL. 

The Alouettes placed Sam on their suspended list after he left, but welcomed him back on Saturday.
