Any changes for Tennessee at wide receiver are related to the coaching staff, not the roster.
Despite widespread reports of pending discipline for star sophomore Da'Rick Rogers, including multiple sources within UT confirming the possibility to the News Sentinel, the program shot them down on Friday evening.
That leaves the vacancy left by the retirement of position coach Charlie Baggett as the only uncertainty at wide receiver, with Rogers continuing to wrap up classes for the semester and still currently in the plans for the Vols as they head into the offseason.
"Da'Rick Rogers has not been suspended," UT coach Derek Dooley said in a statement. "(He) is still a part of our football team."
There appeared to be some doubt about that after sources briefed on a team meeting but not authorized to speak publicly indicated that Rogers could be in line for the same sort of roster limbo that former Vols safety Janzen Jackson faced a year ago - not technically suspended but perhaps also not part of the program officially.
But Dooley seemed to make a clear distinction between the two players with his statement, and additional sources stressed throughout the day that Rogers was not facing any sort of punishment from the program.
Rogers finished the season as the most productive player for UT on offense and was among the top targets in the SEC while racking up 67 catches for 1,040 yards with nine touchdowns in the disappointing 5-7 season that ended with last weekend's 10-7 loss at Kentucky.
