Vols players charged with attempted armed robbery will not play Sat.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Three University of Tennessee freshmen players charged with attempted armed robbery will not play with the Volunteers at Mississippi.

Tennessee spokeswoman Tiffany Carpenter says the team will travel to Oxford without wide receiver NuKeese Richardson, safety Janzen Jackson and defensive back Mike Edwards. The Vols (5-4, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) face the Rebels (6-3, 2-3) on Saturday. According to sheriffs officials, Richardson remains in jail in lieu of a $19,500 bond. Edwards posted a $19,500 bond, and Jackson was released on his own recognizance.

The three 18-year-olds are accused of demanding money from three men at a Pilot gas station near Tennessee's campus early Thursday morning. One of the three allegedly brandished a pellet gun during the attempted robbery. Coach Lane Kiffin and athletic director Mike Hamilton have declined comment on the situation as they try to gather more information.
