TENNESSEE: Reserve wide receiver Jordan Murphy and defensive back Terrell Bailey have left Tennessee’s football team.

Neither Bailey nor Murphy played Saturday in a 38-30 season-opening loss to 26-point underdog Georgia State. Coach Jeremy Pruitt said Monday that Murphy had been sick over the last week.

Earlier this week, Murphy’s Twitter account retweeted a tweet poking fun at how Georgia State upset Tennessee and received $950,000 to play in the game. The retweet was later deleted.

Murphy, a junior from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, played 10 games and caught 11 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown last season. He also ran for 58 yards on two carries.

Bailey, a sophomore from New Orleans, played four games last season but didn’t post any statistics.
