Janzen Jackson rejoins the Vols, will play Saturday


During Lane Kiffin's weekly media session today, he announced that freshman free safety Janzen Jackson has rejoined team activities as of today, and will play in Saturday's crucial contest at Kentucky, with both teams fighting for January 1 bowl bids.

VolQuest has Kiffin's comments about the situation here ($), mentioning that Jackson was cleared of all wrongdoing by the Knoxville Police Department, and re-emphasizing the importance of having high standards and conducting thorough investigations.  Jackson missed the Memphis game for failing a drug test, and has missed the Ole Miss and Vanderbilt games during the course of said investigation.  But he was a major contributor in the Vols' first seven games, starting at free safety.  The Vols hope Jackson's return helps a banged up Tennessee defense turn their fortunes back around to the group that was one of the nation's best in the first seven games of the season.  The Vols need him to return to form quickly.
