BLOOMINGTON - The Indiana Hoosiers have lost their second starting receiver in two days.

Less than 24 hours after announcing senior Damarlo Belcher had been kicked off the team for violating team rules, coach Kevin Wilson says receiver Duwyce Wilson will miss the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Belcher and Wilson were expected to be Indiana's top two receivers coming into this season. Neither will be around for the final three games.

The reeling Hoosiers (1-8, 0-5 Big Ten) are trying to recover from a 59-38 loss to Northwestern and will play at Ohio State (5-3, 2-2) on Saturday. Indiana started seven freshmen in Saturday's game, and the defense has now allowed 204 points in the past four games.
