Just a couple of weeks into camp and the Tennessee Volunteers are already down two offensive lineman for the season. K’Rojhn Calbert will miss his true freshman season due to a knee injury.

The injury is said to be pre-existing, according to 247 Sports. He suffered two knee injuries in high school and was forced to miss his junior season. Needless to say, this is a situation to keep tabs on throughout his career.

The 6-5, 315 pounder will redshirt this season. Calbert joined Tennessee as a part of the 2017 signing class. He was a three star prospect coming out of high school. Calbert was unlikely to contribute as a true freshman, especially with plenty of experienced players in front of him.

Tennessee lost starting right tackle Chance Hall for the season after the decision was made to shut him down last week. Both of these situations were known, but still — these two losses have hurt the Volunteers in terms of depth.
