Tennessee junior WR Marquez North (back) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.
It's been a lost season for North. He has only five catches on the year, none since an eight-yarder against Alabama last month. The Vols probably should have put him on ice from the beginning and petitioned for a medical redshirt. Nov 25 - 1:59 PM

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North is expected to return to the field against Georgia.

North has been dealing with knee and back injuries. It has been a down year for the talented receiver, mainly because of injuries and a porous offensive line. North's best game this season was three catches for 29 yards against Western Carolina.

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones insists junior WR Marquez North is fully healthy for Saturday's game against Bowling Green.

North has dealt with a leg injury, and many panicked after the initial news following a bogus report, but everything appears good to go. Bowling Green has the potential to put up big numbers, so Tennessee needs as many weapons as possible. North plays on the outside and made 30 catches for 320 yards in limited action last season.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Tennessee junior WR Marquez North has the ability to quickly work up draft boards this fall.

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North's leg injury is not considered to be serious and the pass catcher might only miss a week of practice (or less), according to Wes Rucker of 247 Sports.

The initial report from Brad Matthews of Fox Sports Radio Knoxville, stating North could be lost for the season, has now been updated to include Rucker's source. The positive news is a sigh of relief. North has missed time before with injuries but remains one of the Vols most talented players.

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North's status following Wednesday's leg injury "looks more positive than negative," according to WNML's Jimmy Hyams.

This is a very positive update after another local radio personality tweeted North could miss the season following a serious leg injury. Tennessee reportedly cancelled Thursday's practice, but we expect the Vols to release some kind of update on their top receiver.

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North is feared to be out for the entire 2015 season after going down with a non-contact injury during Wednesday's practice, according to local radio host Brad Matthews.

Matthews notes an MRI is scheduled for Thursday. The extent of the injury is currently unknown, however, the cited source seems very certain it is severe. North really flashed in two seasons and was expected to be a pivotal piece in Tennessee's skilled offense.

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North "breakout didn't really happen last year, but that can be blamed on various injuries, an unsettled quarterback situation until the second half of the season and a season-ending shoulder injury that sidelined him for much of Joshua Dobbs' breakout over the last several weeks," wrote Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The 6-foot-4, 224-pound North has a chance to re-emerge as the Vols' best -- and one of the best in the country -- if he stays healthy, especially now that Dobbs has established himself as a viable option at QB," Brown wrote. The analyst ranked North as the No. 25 wide receiver in the nation, but he has the potential to be much more disruptive than that. North had 30 catches for 320 yards in limited action last season. We are with Brown in expecting a whole lot more this time around.

Tennessee junior WR Marquez North "has all the physical tools to warrant a spot this high [No. 34] in the coming draft if he can stay on the field," wrote's Jamie Newberg.

North is Scout's No. 34 overall draft prospect and its No. 5 receiver. "He has size, good speed and soft hands," Newberg wrote. "North is exactly the big target at this position that the NFL covets. North should be ready for a breakout 2015 season." He missed the last three games last year with a shoulder injury and must prove that he can stay healthy in 2015.

Tennessee sophomore WR Marquez North caught four passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 34-19 win over Arkansas State.

North is going to be a big time receiver prospect next season. Both of his receiving touchdowns took place inside the redzone, one for 10 yards and one for 14 yards. The Vols open the season with two wins.

Tennessee freshman WR Marquez North made three catches for 102 yards in the school's 23-21 win over South Carolina.

North's highlight reel moment came in the fourth quarter on a vertical shot, making a one handed catch in tight coverage. Tennessee lost three receivers to last year's draft, but North should be on campus for quite some time. He almost doubled his yardage this season in one game.
