Josh Smith and Shy Tuttle didn’t get in the game against the Yellow Jackets, but may be able to knock some rust off against Indiana State. Jones didn’t offer any specifics on Kendal Vickers or Evan Berry, who both got dinged up on Monday night.
“Drew will be ready to play,” Butch Jones said. Coach Jones is of course referring to starting left tackle Drew Richmond who was suspended for the season opener. Tennessee did a nice job with out Richmond in the opener, but adding back a starter and creating more depth is always a good thing. I’m interested to see the strides that he has made from this summer.
“In terms of Jauan’s (Jennings) injury, it’s indefinite and that’s all I can say at this time. I can’t get into specifics,” Jones said. Jennings was expected to be Tennessee’s number one option at receiver this year, but went down in the first half against Georgia Tech with a reported wrist injury. He is reported to be out up to 12 weeks.
