KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Two of three Tennessee freshmen football
players charged last week in an attempted armed robbery have been
dismissed from the team.
Coach Lane Kiffin says wide receiver Nu'Keese Richardson and
defensive back Mike Edwards are permanently off the team. Edwards
is originally from Cleveland.
Three people told police they were sitting in their parked
vehicle about 2 a.m. last Thursday outside a convenience store near
Tennessee's campus when two males dressed in hooded jackets, one
brandishing a handgun, approached and demanded, "Give us
everything you've got."
A police report says the victims identified Richardson and
Edwards as the men who approached their vehicle.
