KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee offensive linemen Ramone
Johnson and Darius Myers have been suspended for the Volunteers'
upcoming games against Georgia and Mississippi State.
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer announced the suspensions
Tuesday. He says the two are being punished for lack of academic
effort and violation of team rules.
Johnson is a sophomore left tackle from Chicago who has played
in every game this season as a backup to starter Chris Scott. Myers, a sophomore guard from Cordova, hasn't played this season.
The Vols (2-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) travel to No. 10
Georgia (4-1, 1-1) on Saturday before hosting Mississippi State
