KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says in an upcoming documentary he accepted money his senior year at Tennessee.


Foster, who played for Tennessee from 2005-08, says, "My senior year, I was getting money on the side."


Sports Illustrated first reported Foster's comments in the EPIX documentary titled, "Schooled: The Price of College Sports."


Andrew Muscato, a documentary producer, says Foster didn't specify how much he received or who paid him.


Yahoo reported last week that Tennessee defensive lineman Maurice Couch and former Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray were two of five SEC players who received illegal benefits from a runner for agents.


Couch has been ruled ineligible while the school investigates those allegations.


Tennessee didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.


Tennessee is on probation through Aug. 23, 2015.
