RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ó An attorney for Michael Vick says the suspended NFL star has left a Kansas prison and is on his way back to Virginia to meet the next challenges he’ll face.

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 Hampton.

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.
