Four Minnesota football players are reportedly being investigated for their role in an alleged sexual assault in Minneapolis.

Though a police report revealed the four players are being investigated, it isn’t know whether they are being treated as witnesses or suspects.’s Andy Greder reported that a Minneapolis Police Department spokesman said the report “mentions” Gopher football players.

A 22-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted on the morning of Sept. 2, which was hours after Minnesota beat Oregon State in the season opener.

Minnesota coach Tracy Claeys suspended cornerbacks KiAnte Hardin and Ray Buford, safety Dior Johnson and defensive end Tamarion Johnson prior to Saturday’s game against Indiana State.

Claeys said that it was a violation of team rules.

The Pioneer Press reported that the players’ names were not specifically mentioned in the report, just that officers were trying to figure out their role in the alleged incident.
