Tennessee football has run into some injury problems as of late. Offensive lineman Javontez Spraggins was ruled out for the remainder of the season on Monday, the latest Vol to miss an extended amount of time.

A reporter started a question Monday afternoon by saying “Your O-Line is a bit banged up…” to which Heupel grinned and said “”Not just the O-line, man.”

That paints a relevant picture of the Vols’ current depth situation.

Heupel provided some further updates along the secondary Monday. Wesley Walker, who missed last week’s game against Georgia, is questionable for Week 13 against Vanderbilt.

Jourdan Thomas and Tamarion McDonald are in a little better shape for Saturday’s game, but Heupel insisted that he’s “hopeful” all will play in the final game of the regular season.

Tennessee looks to win its 8th game of the season this Saturday against Vanderbilt, which has yet to win an SEC contest this season. The Vols and Commodores will face off at 3:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
