  Memphis played without two key starters against UCF Saturday in leading receiver Damonte Coxie and top cornerback TJ Carter. Following the Tigers' 50-49 win, coach Ryan Silverfield said that Coxie "is not a part of our program right now" and did not elaborate further. He added that Carter was on the sidelines during the game but did not dress. Javon Ivory started in Coxie's place and had four catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Brady White tied for a career-high six touchdowns, including the go-ahead pass to Calvin Austin III. Coxie, who led the team with 16 receptions entering Saturday, spoke with reporters on Tuesday to discuss the challenges facing the Knights' secondary.

He gave no indication that his playing status was in jeopardy for Saturday's game. But with his departure, the Tigers have now seen six players either opt out or leave the program since preseason camp. Kenneth Gainwell, Coye Fairman and Tim Hart announced they opted out while Silverfield said that La'Andre Thomas and John "Pop" Williams have taken leaves of absence for undisclosed reasons. Coxie, who started every game since his sophomore year, had consecutive 1,000 yard seasons in 2018-19. He and Anthony Miller are the only Tigers to do so in program history. - Memphis Commercial Appeal
