RICHMOND, Va (AP)---An attorney for Michael Vick says the suspended NFL star has left a Kansas prison and is on his way back to Virginia.

Larry Woodward, a member of Vick's legal team, says Vick left
the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth overnight. Woodward says
Vick is happy to be starting this part of the process. He's due to
return to Virginia later this week to begin serving the final two
months of his sentence under home confinement at a home he owns in

Vick had been serving a 23-month sentence for financing a
dogfighting ring.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is expected to be
released from federal custody July 20, and hopes to persuade NFL
commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him.
