KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - According to search warrants, Knoxville police have obtained DNA samples from two suspended Tennessee football players as part of an investigation into a reported rape and sexual assault of two 19-year-old women.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1v5bmmP) reported Friday that, according to the warrants, both players complied with a judge’s order Tuesday that they submit to DNA swabs at the police department.

Knoxville police have said the two players - linebacker A.J. Johnson and cornerback Michael Williams - have been identified as subjects of the investigation.

Neither player has been charged or arrested.

One woman says Johnson and Williams raped her at a Knoxville apartment early Sunday. A second woman says she was sexually assaulted by Williams at the same location.

The university has suspended Johnson and Williams from all team-related activities.
