KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee tailback LaMarcus Coker and defensive tackle Demonte Bolden will miss the game against Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday because of a violation of team rules.
Bolden is a starter on the defensive line while Coker returns kicks and plays behind starter Arian Foster.
``Those guys are important to us, and hopefully we can have them back for Arkansas,'' coach Phillip Fulmer said Wednesday. He didn't elaborate on the violation.
Coker was suspended for almost three weeks of practice in August for what team officials described as a medical issue. He was also suspended for several practices last December in advance of the Outback Bowl for undisclosed reasons.
Despite the absences, Fulmer said he does not anticipate issues with depth this week. He said freshman tailback Lennon Creer, who has suffered from soreness in his knee for some time, has responded well to his treatments.
``It is what it is,'' Fulmer said. ``You got 83 guys that are doing just the right things; a couple that don't.''
