Da’Rick Rogers, Tennessee’s talented receiver who is likely high-round draft pick next April, has been suspended indefinitely from the team for “violation of team rules.”
Devastating blow to QB Tyler Bray and coach Derek Dooley. Bray is poised for a big season behind a solid offensive line and having crucial weapons like Rogers and Justin Hunter. The Vols offense returns 10 starters. It is unclear what Rogers did, but we’ll update the post as news becomes available.
[UPDATE: As a few of you have noted, the Vols have some nice depth at wide receiver. This depth chart has Vincent Dallas (sophomore), Zach Rogers (senior) and you can also toss in Cordarelle Patterson (JUCO transfer). But apparently this week, Dallas was moved to cornerback.]
[UPDATE: Coach Derek Dooley, addressing the media just now, said he "doesn't expect Rogers" to play for the Vols this season. Still no details on what happened.]
