Five members of Iowa’s football team have departed from the program, according to a report.

On Monday, Marc Morehouse of the Cedar Rapids Gazette tweeted out that linebacker Nate Wieland, running back Camron Harrell, cornerback Manny Rugamba, cornerback Cedric Boswell and defensive end Romeo McKnight have left the program. Two other players, linebacker Kyle Taylor and running back Toks Akinribade have ended their careers on medical hardships.

There was not much information on why the players left, but with Kirk Ferentz taking the podium at B1G Media Days on Tuesday, it will be interesting to see how the Iowa head coach addresses the issue.

Rugamba is the most significant departure, having played a key role in the Iowa defense the last two seasons. The defensive back played in 22 games for the Hawkeyes, recording 56 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions.

In addition to the departures, Morehouse also reported that defensive tackle Brady Reiff will have a one-game suspension following his public intoxication arrest over the weekend.

Iowa opens the season on Saturday, Sept. 1 against Northern Illinois at Kinnick Stadium.
