Illinois wide receiver Darius Millines and defensive end Darrius Caldwell have been kicked off the team for unspecified rules violations, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

Millines was the Illini's second-leading receiver last fall as a junior, catching 32 passes for 319 yards. His expulsion from the program comes on the heels of a suspension handed down by coach Tim Beckman in March.

Caldwell, a promising sophomore-to-be, had 17 tackles last season, including five for losses and 2 1/2 sacks.

Losing these players, especially Caldwell, is a blow for a team that needs as much depth as possible as it tries to bounce back from a dismal 2-10 season.
