DURHAM, N.C. -- Three players have been kicked off the Duke football team for conduct unbecoming of members of the program.

Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe said Sunday night that freshmen John Drew, Kyle Griswould and Brandon Putnam had been dismissed from the team.

University officials say the three have been charged with felonious possession and discharge of a weapon after an early morning incident on campus.

Drew, the only one who saw action last season, made one start and played in all 12 games at defensive tackle. He made 34 stops and one fumble recovery.
