Indiana delivered some tough news on Monday morning.
Wide receiver and punt returner J-Shun Harris will miss the last four games of the 2017 season after suffering a torn ACL. Harris, who has proven to be a huge threat on special teams this year, missed the past two seasons with injury.
Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star tweeted out the news.

Harris has only caught three passes for the Hoosiers this season but has been a great weapon as a punt returner. In seven games, Harris returned 14 punts for 266 yards and two touchdowns.
The loss is a devastating blow for Harris and the Hoosiers. the receiver was having a tremendous year and it appeared that those injury woes were in the rearview mirror.
Indiana will need to find another playmaker to try and fill that role.
The Hoosiers host No. 4 Wisconsin this weekend in Bloomington.
