Source: WR Da'Rick Rodgers may be off squad for now

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Possible trouble for star wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, who may have fallen out of favor with head coach Derek Dooley.

Several reports indicate that while Rogers is not officially suspended, he may not be part of the team right now. So far, the University of Tennessee is denying the reports and says Rogers is still on the team.

The situation may be similar to the one Janzen Jackson faced last year in that Rogers now has a chance to work his way back into Coach Derek Dooley's good graces.

Despite working with three different quarterbacks through the season, Rogers still managed to pile up over 1,000 receiving yards in what turned out to be a disappointing season for the Vols.
