Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced Wednesday that running back John Kelly and linebacker Will Ignont have been suspended for Saturday's game against Kentucky. Both were cited for possession of marijuana after a traffic stop in Knoxville on Tuesday evening. Original story Running back John Kelly has been one of the bright spots for Tennessee in an otherwise disappointing season. However, now the Volunteers' best offensive player is in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Knoxville police say in a statement Kelly and linebacker Will Ignont were cited during a traffic stop after marijuana was found in their car. The report states that Kelly, who was driving, and Ignont were pulled over Tuesday evening because of a headlight being burned out. When the window to the vehicle was rolled down, the officer on site detected a strong odor identified as marijuana, at which time the officer searched the car with the consent of the two players.
