Tennessee is losing safeties at an alarming rate. Last week Janzen Jackson withdrew from school -- though it's entirely possible he'll be back at Tennessee for the fall -- due to personal issues, and on Sunday word came down that Derek Dooley had suspended Brent Brewer from the team. Brewer was arrested over the weekend in a domestic dispute.

"Without knowing all the facts, any domestic incident warrants a suspension from all team-related activities until a thorough investigation is concluded," Dooley said in a statement. "We respect everyone's right to the legal process, but also acknowledge a greater standard of conduct associated with the privilege of being a member of the Tennessee football team."

Brewer was released on $1,500 bond Sunday.

Brewer did not begin his freshman season in Knoxville as a starter, but was inserted halfway through the season, starting alonside Jackson at safety. Now the Vols head into the 2011 season possibly having to replace both of their safeties.
