Massive loss.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Tennessee Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

Per a report from 247 Sports, the Tennessee Volunteers will be without John Kelly and Will Ignont this Saturday against the Kentucky Wildcats.

The two players were cited for possession of marijuana late on Tuesday night.

Kelly is obviously a massive loss for Tennessee, who hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown in a month. They’ll likely give most of the carries to true freshman Ty Chandler, who has just 27 carries on the season.

Carlin Fils-Aime, Tim Jordan and Trey Coleman could also be in the mix.

Kelly has put up 615 rushing yards and an additional 255 receiving yards to this point. He’s tied for the lead in targets on the team. Kelly is pretty easily Tennessee’s best offensive player.

In a game that Butch Jones has to have, this was probably about the last thing he wanted to see happen.
