The football season is almost here and Tennessee’s preseason fall camp officially starts on Friday, August 3rd. Most of the Vols’ roster will be fully healthy at the kickoff of preseason practices but one of the team’s top returning skill players won’t be 100 percent.
Head UT football coach Jeremy Pruitt spoke to media on Thursday and stated that redshirt junior wide receiver Jauan Jennings will be limited during the upcoming practice sessions due to injury.
Here’s exactly what Pruitt had to say about Jennings’ health status…
“(Jauan) is cleared, ready to practice. But again, he’s not participated in anything in a football activity since last fall. So, he’s ready to go but we’re going to limit his reps and build it up as fall camp goes.”
Beyond Jennings, Pruitt indicated that offensive lineman Chance Hall will be ready to practice but will not fully participate because he is still coming back from injury. And Hall’s fellow offensive lineman Trey Smith will also be limited, according to Pruitt, until around the 19th or 20th of August when his full treatment for blood clots that were discovered during the offseason will be complete.
Tennessee’s preseason workouts in front of media begin tomorrow at 2:50 p.m. ET and Orange & White Report will be there. Check back here for video coverage and analysis.
