The attorneys for four Gophers football players accused of being involved in a rape had expressed hope that their clients might be able to return to the team someday. That possibility came to an end Wednesday.

Football coach Tim Brewster dismissed cornerback Dominic Jones, running back E.J. Jones, defensive end Alex Daniels and cornerback Keith Massey from the program for "violations of both team and University of Minnesota student-athlete code of conduct regulations." For now, the players remain on scholarship and enrolled in school, but university officials indicated that could change, too.
