Tennessee Players Face Indefinite Suspension

Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com reports on his blog that Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl will suspend Tyler Smith, Cameron Tatum, Brian Williams and Melvin Goins indefinitely after their arrest on weapons and drug charges on New Year's Day.

Parrish writes that the players' future with the program will be determined as more facts become available.

The car, which didn't belong to any of the players, is a rental, which Parrish says is another aspect of the case that may warrant more investigation, potentially by the NCAA.

The arrests and suspensions come at a bad time for Tennessee schedule-wise. The Volunteers host Charlotte, a team that has already won at Louisville, on Wednesday. Top-ranked Kansas then comes calling on Saturday, January 10th.
