Three Purdue football players have reportedly been both kicked off the team and expelled from the school after an investigation into sexual assault allegations made against them, per Fox59.

Although Purdue has not confirmed the report, the law firm that represents the accuser's family, Massillamany & Jeter LLP, explained the decision came after an internal investigation by the school.

The police did not file charges against the players following the October incident.

"My clients and I appreciate Purdue's careful review of the facts and circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident, which led to the expulsion of these three players," attorney Mario Massillamany said. "Purdue has taken the necessary steps to ensure that these players will not victimize another student, for which we are grateful."

According to Joseph Paul of the Indy Star, four players were initially accused of sexual assault by two Purdue students.

The school confirmed at the time the four players were suspended from the team in November.
