Rogers no longer a part of Tennessee's team

Posted: Updated:
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -

Forget about the possibility of suspended wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers playing for Tennessee this season.
 
Amid reports that Rogers had transferred to Tennessee Tech, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley indicated Monday that the star receiver was no longer part of the Volunteers' roster.
 
Dooley says Rogers "is not a part of our team, as expected."
 
Tennessee Tech spokesman Rob Schabert says he couldn't confirm reports of Rogers' arrival. Because Tennessee Tech is a Football Championship Subdivision school, Rogers could transfer there without having to sit out a year.
 
Rogers caught 67 passes for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns to earn all-Southeastern Conference honors for Tennessee last season. He was indefinitely suspended Thursday for a violation of team rules.
 
Tennessee Tech went 7-4 and earned its first FCS playoff berth last year.
