LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- University of Kentucky police say three members of the football team have been charged with marijuana possession.

UK Police Chief Joe Monroe identified the players as running back Raymond Sanders, cornerback Marcus Caffey and wide receiver Bookie Cobbins. They were charged Thursday night.

The Associated Press says coach Joker Phillips said Monday that the players will remain with the team.

The AP said Sanders, of Stone Mountain, Ga., and Cobbins, of New Orleans, were suspended for Saturday's game against Western Kentucky, which the Wildcats lost 32-31 in overtime. They are eligible to play Saturday at Florida. Caffey, of Atlanta, was ruled academically ineligible before the season began.

All three are due in Fayette County District Court on Oct. 9.
