-From IDS reports\nSophomore quarterback Kellen Lewis has been suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules.\nLewis, who led the Hoosiers to their first bowl game in over a decade this past season, faces his first career suspension. \n“Kellen has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules,” IU coach Bill Lynch said in a statement. “He will not participate as we begin spring practice. Kellen needs time away from the program, and we look forward to his return at some point in the future.”\nAn impact player on the Hoosier offense, the absence of Lewis could spell severe problems for the program. With the departure of star wide receiver James Hardy, Lewis is one of the remaining playmakers from this year’s bowl team.\nLewis led the team with 28 passing touchdowns and nine rushing touchdowns. He also led the Hoosiers in passing yards (3,043) and with 736 rushing yards at five yards per carry.
