AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State wide receiver D'Vario Montgomery and running back Joshua Thomas won't return to the team for next season.
The Cyclones say Montgomery has been dismissed for violating team rules. Thomas intends to transfer to another school.
Montgomery was fourth on the team with 27 receptions for 335 yards and three touchdowns last season.
Thomas ran for 295 yards as a freshman. But the rise of Mike Warren, who led all freshmen nationally with 1,339 yards in 2015, likely played a role in Thomas's decision to leave.
