Tennessee junior WR Alton Howard has been suspended for the team's season-opener due to an unspecified violation of team rules.
While HC Butch Jones didn't delve into specifics, he indicated that Howard's violation of team rules occurred several months ago. "This isn't something that just occurred," said the coach, adding that the infraction "dates back many months." Nicknamed "Pig," Howard has been the Volunteers' leading receiver in each of the last two seasons. The 5-foot-9, 178-pound junior hauled in 54 passes for 618 yards and a touchdown last season. With Howard down for the opener, the Tennessee receiving corp looks incredibly thin, as Jason Croom and Vincent Perry will be undergoing knee scopes on Friday and it has yet to be determined when they'll return.
