Indiana has been dealt a huge blow on the defensive side of the ball.

Defensive back Jamar Johnson has been ejected from Saturday’s game against Michigan late in the first quarter. He was dealt an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and ejected after a confrontation with Michigan WR Ronnie Bell.

Johnson was ejected for throwing a punch at Bell:

Johnson is definitely a big loss defensively as he has 15 tackles, including 2.5 for loss, and an interception in 2020. Hopefully the Hoosiers are able to make up for his absence.
