Butch Jones updates Vols' injuries leading up to South Carolina
The Volunteers continue to fight the season-long battle of attrition as Team 119 enters the final month of its regular season schedule.
Wednesday head coach Butch Jones gave the latest updates with a number of players attempting to work through injuries and play Saturday at home against South Carolina.
The following players were discussed by Jones during his midweek press conference:
Offensive lineman Brett Kendrick:
"Kendrick will be out. He did practice a little yesterday but not quite yet game ready."
Offensive lineman Jashon Robertson:
"Jashon Robertson is still questionable, we'll know a little bit more how he progresses through the course of the week."
Receiver Preston Williams:
"Preston Williams is kinda the same, he will practice today, so that's encouraging.
Defensive back Stephen Griffin:
"Doubtful. He kind of aggravated his ankle in practice (Tuesday).”
Receiver Jason Croom:
"Progressing but not ready to even practice yet." Croom has yet to play for the team this season following offseason knee surgery.
