Report: Tennessee Quarterback Quinten Dormady to have shoulder surgery

Will McBride will be the backup.

NCAA Football: South Carolina at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

According to a report from, Tennessee will be without their now backup quarterback Quinten Dormady against the Kentucky Wildcats. Dormady visited Chicago last week to have his shoulder checked out, but made the trip to Tuscaloosa. Now it’s being reported that he has made the decision to go forward with a procedure.

Sources tell that Dormady did not make the trip to Lexington, Kentucky and is expected to have shoulder surgery. —

Jarrett Guarantano replaced Dormady in the lineup during the week of the South Carolina game. Dormady started five games for the Vols this season, throwing for 925 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. Tennessee was 3-2 during that span.

This obviously shifts true freshman Will McBride up a spot on the depth chart. McBride hasn’t seen any action to this point. It’s clearly Guarantano’s show, but now you’re just one potential injury away from seeing McBride.

UPDATE: Dormady is expected to miss the rest of the year.
