On Butch Jones’ weekly radio talk show on Wednesday he updated an injury report from earlier in the day. While Jalen Reeves-Maybin is definitely out for the game, it was questionable whether linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. would be available for the game against Texas A&M. Now we know for sure that Tennessee’s next man up mentality will be kicking in for sure.
Kirkland had previously been considered day-to-day, but it looks like he’s being shut down for sure. Colton Jumper has been the starter the last three games in place of Kirkland so the Vols are pretty used to missing some starters and will hopefully be able to pull off a win once against in College Station.
The game is set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff on CBS.
