Sophomore running back Marcus Binns is no longer on the Iowa football team roster, according to a statement released by head coach Kirk Ferentz on Tuesday.

"Due to injuries, Marcus Binns has not been an active member of the Iowa football program for over one calendar year," the statement said. "Following the completion of spring practice, it was determined Marcus is no longer a part of the football team."

Binns, the younger brother of former Hawkeye defensive end Broderick Binns, walked on the team but did not see any action during the 2011 season. He did not redshirt.

In an unrelated incident, Binns, 21, was charged with fifth-degree theft on July 13, as reported by The Daily Iowan.

Police officers were dispatched to Dillards, 1411 Coral Ridge Ave., after receiving a report of shoplifting, according to a Coralville police complaint. Store security told police that they saw Binns switch the tags on two shirts in an attempt to purchase a $75 shirt for $17.32.

The amount of the alleged theft was $57.68, according to the complaint. Fifth-degree theft is a simple misdemeanor.
