As many as eight Rutgers football players are being investigated by university police for possible credit card fraud, NJ Advance Media reported Thursday.

No charges have been filed and players are cooperating with investigators, sources told NJ Advance Media.

NJ Advance Media did not identify the players who are under investigation, but its reporting made it appear as though safety K.J. Gray is one of them.

On Wednesday, Rutgers dismissed defensive back K.J. Gray and linebacker Brendan DeVera for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Asked if his dismissal was connected to the investigation, Gray said his lawyer advised him "to keep quiet about the situation."

NJ Advance Media reported separately Thursday that Gray was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and multiple traffic offenses after a June vehicle stop in East Brunswick, N.J.

The report also said that Rutgers officials were not aware of the arrest at the time of Gray's dismissal and that they learned of it only when NJ Advance Media asked them for a response.

Gray, a rising junior, played in 20 games (four starts) in two seasons with the Scarlet Knights. He led RU's secondary with 58 tackles last season.
