Darius Millines and Darrius Caldwell are now off the Illinois football squad for violating team rules, the team confirmed on Wednesday.

The team suspended Millines in early March for violating team rules. He did not practice with the team during spring practice. The senior was slotted to be the No. 2 receiver for Illinois. He had 32 receptions for 319 yards in the 2012 season.

Caldwell, a sophomore, participated in only a handful of spring practices. The team wanted to the linebacker/defensive end to focus on his academic work. He played in every game last season for the Illini.
