Butch Jones updates status of injured Vols WR Marquez Callaway
It looks like the Tennessee Volunteers received some good news on Monday as the team prepares to take on South Carolina.
The Vols are coming off the bye week with a record of 3-2 and are still looking for their first SEC win of the season. They will take on the Gamecocks Saturday in Knoxville, and the Volunteers will get one of their best offensive players back for the matchup.
Head coach Butch Jones announced that star WR Marquez Callaway will be available and ready to play this weekend when the Gamecocks come to town. Callaway has eight receptions for 198 yards and 3 TDs this season.
Mike Wilson shared the report on Twitter:
Butch Jones says Marquez Callaway will be able to play Saturday against South Carolina. Big lift for UT, if it throws him the ball.

Getting Callaway back is a huge positive, but South Carolina’s defense is coming off a dominant showing against Arkansas. Tennessee will need a complete offensive performance and steady QB play to get the win.
Saturday’s kickoff is set for 12 pm EST on ESPN.
