 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana suspended record-setting quarterback Kellen Lewis indefinitely on Thursday for violating team rules with spring practice about three weeks away.
``He will not participate as we begin spring practice,'' coach Bill Lynch said in a statement. ``Kellen needs time away from the program and we look forward to his return at some point in the future.''
Team spokesman Jeff Keag would not give details about what rules Lewis violated.
Keag said Lynch would make no additional comments on what led to the suspension or when Lewis might return to the team.
Losing Lewis leaves one of the Big Ten's top offenses from 2007 without its leader.
th receivers such as Ray Fisher and James Bailey.
Instead, the Hoosiers will spend the spring adjusting. Practice begins March 25.
Lewis' backup last year, Ben Chappell, who will be a sophomore, now inherits the starting job even though he has thrown two passes in college. Chappell played in three games last season.
Indiana's only returning backup, Teddy Schell, who did not play as a freshman in 2007, is also expected to miss the entire spring with an elbow injury.
Lynch is moving safety Mitchell Evans back to quarterback, where he opened fall camp in 2007. Evans was twice an all-state high school quarterback in Ohio. He moved to safety for his freshman season.
The Hoosiers do not expect to have another quarterback in camp until the fall, unless Lewis returns before Indiana's intrasquad scrimmage April 19.
In addition, the Hoosiers must also find replacements for Marcus Thigpen, their second-leading rusher, and cornerback Tracy Porter, who like Hardy is expected to be drafted in April. Both were seniors last season.
Lewis burst onto the scene in September 2006 when the Hoosiers' top two quarterbacks were hurt. He was pressed into service at Ball State and rallied the Hoosiers to a come-from-behind victory. He secured the starting job a couple of weeks later and wound up throwing for 2,221 yards and 19 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman.
Last year, Lewis developed into as one of the conference's most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks. He broke school single-season records for attempts (442), completions (265), yards passing, TD passes, total touchdowns (37), total yards (3,709) and completion percentage (60.0)
He is currently tied with Antwaan Randle El for most TD passes in a career (42) and ranks among the school's top five for career yards (5,264), completions (455) and attempts (788).
