Three more players for the Minnesota Gophers have been served with restraining orders that will keep them from playing this weekend. Minnesota is set to play host to Rutgers this weekend and now a total of five players from the Minnesota team will be unable to play.
While none of the players have been suspended by the NCAA or the team, the alleged victim in the incident is involved with the home game operations. The restraining orders were filed in the Hennepin County court and stem from an incident that allegedly happened on Sept. 2.
All five players are represented by the same attorney and will appear in court on Tuesday, Oct. 25. He expected to have all five restraining orders reversed, but in the meantime, the players are ineligible.
Because the TCF Bank Stadium is listed among the restricted addresses, Carlton Djam and Tamarion Johnson will be forced to watch the game from home. Their teammates, KiAnte Hardin, Ray Buford and Dior Johnson have missed three games because of the alleged incident.
