Jones updates injuries in anticipation for Missouri

BY foxsports • November 16, 2015

Heading into the Missouri game, Tennessee's banged up offensive line is sorely in need of some reinforcements. With a little bit of luck, the Vols will be getting back one of its most talented interior offensive linemen in Jashon Robertson for its last two SEC games. 

Also thin at receiver, UT could also be aided with the return of freshman receiver Preston Williams back into the lineup. 

They are all going to practice," Butch Jones said Monday. "I think Jashon is more game ready and than he’s ever been, we’ll know more a little bit tomorrow when the pads go on. Preston the same thing, they’re all going to practice today, just like they did last week. Through the course of the week, they just went game ready. We anticipate them all being ready to go."

With the news of Missouri being without key defender Terry Beckner in the middle of its defense, the Vols may have a crucial health advantage this week against the Tigers if Robertson is healthy enough to play.
