It shouldn’t be a significant problem because he was rarely used, but Indiana cornerback Peter St. Fort has been suspended indefinitely after getting hit with a DUI and possession of marijuana over the weekend, coach Kevin Wilson said after practice today.
St. Fort, a junior, was arrested at 4:22 a.m. on Sunday, a police report shows.
Additionally, Wilson identified three other players — running backs Nick Turner and Antonio Banks and defensive tackle Marlandez Harris — who have left the team.
“He came in and said he didn’t want to play,” Wilson said of Turner. “Thought it was a good choice because he hadn’t been practicing hard.
“He’s a nice kid. He’s got good talent. He’s a smart young man. I just don’t know if he wants to play. I kinda thought it was a good choice. Wished him well, had no issues.”
The loses of Turner and Banks further deplete a running back group that was already dealing with the loss of Darius Willis to what is considered a season-ending knee injury.
