IU Coach Tom Allen announced Saturday afternoon that suspended sophomore quarterback Danny Cameron, junior tight end Jordan Fuchs and sophomore defensive back Wesley Green were all dismissed from the program.

The three players were suspended indefinitely earlier this month. Allen has not given reason for the players' suspensions or dismissals.

Cameron — son of former IU head football coach Cam Cameron — made one appearance in his IU career, filling in for injured quarterbacks Nate Sudfeld and Zander Diamont in 2015 against Penn State. Cameron completed six of his 16 pass attempts, and the Hoosiers lost, 29-7.

After suffering a season-ending injury in the 2016 season opener, Fuchs was taking on a bigger role within the passing game before his suspension in early March. The tight end caught a career total of seven passes for 69 yards and three touchdowns.

Green, a transfer from South Carolina, sat out the 2015 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules and was suspended indefinitely at the beginning of the 2016 season before making appearances against Maryland and Purdue at the end of the season.

The three players are the first suspensions and dismissals in the Allen era.
