First off, to this link: Vols Second-string SAM LB LaTroy Lewis, a true freshman, tore his ACL in a non-contact injury this weekend and will miss the season. Also, freshman kicker George Bullock, broke a bone in his leg and is also expected to redshirt.
Willie Bohannon is now the backup SAM, and Jordan Williams will back up at Jack and also Sam. Vols are woefully thin there.
The latest on linebacker Kenny Bynum is he'll redshirt this season after having surgery to repair torn meniscus. Alton "Pig" Howard is still a couple of weeks away from returning from his surgery. Jason Croom re-joined the team today but is somewhat limited because of a hamstring injury.
Finally, you guys know by now Da'Rick Rogers has transferred to Tennessee Tech, so that door is closed.
