Andre McDonald will not play for Gophers this season


Following his removal from training camp for a violation of team rules in August, Golden Gophers wide receiver Andre McDonald will not play football for the Maroon and Gold this season according to head coach Jerry Kill.

“Right now he’s not going to play for us this semester. That’s all I’m going to say on that,” said Kill.

The University of Minnesota will take on New Mexico State University this Saturday in Las Cruces, N.M. with their young and unproven wide receiver corps. The announcement of his absence from the roster for the rest of the season is a bit of a shocker and begs the question of whether the Hopkins High School graduate will ever see the field for the Gophers again.
