Duke Now

Terrence Alls and T.J. Douglas suspended from Duke football team

Two Duke football players have been suspended indefinitely, head coach David Cutcliffe announced Friday.

Redshirt sophomore defensive back T.J. Douglas and wide receiver Terrence Alls are suspended from game competition until they "uphold the academic, athletic and community standards required of a member of the Blue Devil program," head coach Cutcliffe said in a press release. Obviously, with Duke’s opener not until Sept. 3rd, that gives both of them time to make amends.

Alls was one of Duke’s two most improved offensive players during spring football, and he had worked his way into a starting role. He played sparingly last season, catching two passes for 14 yards, but he was expected to be a major contributor next season.

Douglas, a reserve, played in all 12 games last year and recorded one tackle.

There have been no legal charges filed against either Alls or Douglas in the state of North Carolina, according to a public records search.
