Date:

Tennessee junior TE Dominick Wood-Anderson (undisclosed) participated in Tuesday's practice on a limited basis.

Wood-Anderson (6'4/257) was suited up on Tuesday, but it would appear that he is not quite far enough along for a more full participation on individual drills. He's considered day-to-day in advance of Saturday's date with Alabama due to the undisclosed injury concern sustained in this past weekend's upset of Auburn.

Tennessee redshirt senior LB Jonathan Kongbo has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

Kongbo (6'5/254) tore the ACL in his right knee during Saturday's upset win over Auburn. Now that he's been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, his collegiate career has come to an end. The redshirt senior initially signed on with Tennessee as the top JUCO recruit in the 2016 class. His most productive season in Knoxville came in 2017, when he registered 29 tackles and 2.5 sacks while making 10 starts. For the current campaign, Kongbo had started five of six games while compiling 11 tackles and an interception prior to suffering the unfortunate knee injury against the Tigers. Over the summer, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline pegged the linebacker -- he began his time with Tennessee as a defensive end before shifting to OLB this offseason -- as a likely undrafted free agent for the spring. Sophomore Deandre Johnson came in for Kongbo after he left Saturday's game and could be in line for an expanded workload now that the Vols are having to reexamine their options in the front seven

Tennessee HC Jeremy Pruitt announced that junior TE Dominick Wood-Anderson (undisclosed) is day-to-day.

Wood-Anderson left Saturday's upset win over Auburn with the injury. The former four-star JUCO transfer has only one catch all year.
Oct 16 - 1:19 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Guarantano completed 18-of-25 passes for 255 yards when given a clean pocket in Saturday's 30-24 win over Auburn.

Guarantano also had nine touchdowns + first down throws and a 117.9 passer rating when given a clean pocket to work with. He had his best game of the season in the Vols upset win over Auburn but will now have to face Alabama at home. Guarantano will likely be hard-pressed to see similar success next week.
Oct 14 - 10:44 AM

Tennessee senior WR Jauan Jennings caught five passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 30-24 win over Auburn.

This was Jennings best game of the season in both receptions and yards. His touchdown was from 25 yards out on a well-thrown lob to the back corner of the end zone where Jennings escalated and caught the ball over the defender. He will have to be at his best next week against Alabama.
Oct 13 - 4:34 PM

Tennessee sophomore RB Ty Chandler rushed for 50 yards on 16 carries and caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown through the air in Saturday's 30-24 win over Auburn.

Chandler struggled to get much of anything going on the ground for the third consecutive game and only averaged 3.1 yards per carry. He was most useful as a receiver and connected with QB Jarrett Guarantano for a 42-yard score in the second quarter. He ran a seam route out of the backfield and none of Auburn's linebackers even knew he was there as he strolled into the end zone untouched. He will have another tough matchup at home against powerhouse Alabama.
Oct 13 - 4:25 PM

Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Guarantano completed 21-of-32 passes for 328 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-24 win over Auburn.

This was Guarantano first 300-yard outing of 2018 and by far his best play of the season. He now has back-to-back outings with two touchdowns and no interceptions, a potential sign of development for the redshirt sophomore. His first touchdown pass came in the second quarter from 42 yards out and the second from 25 yards away to take the lead in the third quarter. They face No. 1 Alabama next week at home, a spot Guarantano is very likely to struggle.
Oct 13 - 4:17 PM

Tennessee junior LB Daniel Bituli was ejected from Saturday's game at Auburn for targeting.

This a big deal for the Volunteers, as the fourth quarter ejection means that Bituli (6'3/244) will miss the first half of the team's October 20 game against Alabama. The junior LB has been one of Tennessee's best defensive players this season, as he entered Saturday's game with 26 total tackles.
Oct 13 - 3:31 PM

Tennessee redshirt senior LB Jonathan Kongbo was helped off the field during the third quarter of Saturday's game at Auburn with an apparent right leg injury.

How severe Kongbo's injury is has yet to be reported, so it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return. The redshirt senior, who intercepted a pass in the first half, accounted for five total tackles in Tennessee's September 29 loss at Georgia.
Oct 13 - 2:35 PM

Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Guarantano is wearing a brace on his left knee in Saturday's game against Auburn.

Guarantano suffered the injury last month against Florida and hasn't completely shaken it. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound signal-caller was able to make the start against the Tigers. Keep an eye on him mobility, which could be compromised. Guarantano, who is 0-8 against Power 5 team, is looking for the first big win of his career.
Oct 13 - 12:18 PM

Tennessee freshman S Trevon Flowers will miss the rest of the season after breaking his collarbone during practice last week.

Flowers has undergone surgery. He appeared in the first five games and had nine tackles total. Without Flowers around, Theo Jackson and Shawn Shamburger figure to work in behind starting safeties Micah Abernathy and Nigel Warrior.
Oct 9 - 11:42 AM

Tennessee junior WR Marquez Callaway (head) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

Callaway (6'2/200) suffered a head injury after sustaining a hard hit in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to Georgia. The junior wideout did not return to field after going down injured. With Tennessee currently off on bye, he has some time to heal up before the Vols play their next game, against Auburn on Oct. 13. In five games this season, Callaway has caught 17 passes for 253 yards. Still looking for his first touchdown.
Oct 2 - 6:25 PM

Tennessee sophomore RB Ty Chandler rushed for 27 scoreless yards on five carries but caught four passes for 53 yards and touchdown through the air in Saturday's 38-12 loss to Georgia.

Chandler (5'11/201) wasn't going to have a big rushing game against Georgia's No. 9 defense, but he was able to take a target 35 yards for a receiving touchdown. The sophomore back, who has averaged six yards per carry, has been a bright spot for Tennessee through five games, but it's going to be a grind the next couple games with Auburn and Alabama coming up after this week's much needed bye.
Sep 29 - 8:36 PM

Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Guarantano completed 13-of-21 passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-12 loss to Georgia.

Guarantano played a good game with all things considered. The redshirt sophomore was playing through a knee injury that forced him out of last week's game, but he was also playing the nation's No. 9 scoring defense on the road. Despite all this, the Volunteers were able to hang around in the second half before a couple late Georgia scores. Tennessee (2-3) has a lot to work on during the bye week before returning to game action at Auburn on October 13th, but today's game went better than expected.
Sep 29 - 7:19 PM

Tennessee junior WR Marquez Callaway has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game at Georgia with an undisclosed injury.

While Tennessee did not provide any specifics regarding Callaway's injury, the wide receiver was taken to the team's injury tent after being on the receiving end of a hard hit during the third quarter. Shortly thereafter Tennessee's leading receiver was taken back to the locker room and declared to be out for the remainder of the game. With Callaway out, Jauan Jennings and Josh Palmer are the Volunteers' top remaining options at wide receiver.
