Millines suspended

Illinois football coach Tim Beckman says he has suspended wide receiver  Darius Millines indefinitely but will not say why.

Beckman would only say Monday that the junior receiver had violated team policies. Beckman said he will re-evaluate Millines’ situation in early May. When asked if Millines could return he said the “ball’s in Darius’ court, now.”

A shoulder injury would have kept Millines out of most of the team’s spring practices even before the suspension. Spring football starts Tuesday at Illinois

Millines was the No. 2 receiver in yardage last fall behind Ryan Lankford on a team that struggled to move the ball. Millines caught 32 balls for 319 yards and no touchdowns.

Beckman said Millines will continue injury rehabilitation with the team.
