Update: FoxSports’ insider Bruce Feldman said that contrary to reports, North will miss a week or less.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported that North has a knee sprain.

Original report:

According to a report by Brad Matthews at SportsRadioKnoxville, Tennessee wide receiver Marquez North is feared lost for the season.

The report, citing sources, said that North went down with a “serious, non-contact injury to his leg” and had trouble putting any weight on his leg after the injury. North’s MRI reportedly is scheduled for Thursday morning.

Tennessee also abruptly cancelled the scheduled media availability for Thursday morning.

Injuries have plagued North throughout his Tennessee career. In two seasons, North has caught 68 passes for 816 yards and five touchdowns. Although the Vols’ receiving corps is loaded this season, North is a major part of the offense and was expected to be Joshua Dobbs’ top target.
