Reports: Da'Rick Rogers suspended from UT for season


Reports are streaming out of Knoxville, Tennessee Thursday morning that University of Tennessee wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers has been suspended indefinitely for what is being termed a "Violation of Team Policies".

No, we don't know what that means and the school has yet to comment on the report by, a Rivals website that cover UT Football.

The site says Rogers, who was the team's leading returning receiver, an all-SEC and all-American candidate is NOT listed on the team's depth chart heading into the first game of the season in a little over a week.

Rogers made some headlines earlier this summer when he claimed he was looking to possibly transfer closer to home. He's been a lightning rod for some occasional "Odd" behavior during his time on Rocky Top and losing him doesn't bode well for UT.

There should be some sort of coment from Vol coach Derrick Dooley after Thursday's practice. We're guessing Dooley is hoping the team bonds together and overcomes, because unfortunately if they don't have a stellar 2012 season, he's likely to find himself unemployed come December.
