Report: Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara could miss 2-4 weeks or longer
According to a report from 247Sports (VIP), Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara has a sprained LCL and a meniscus injury that will likely require surgery and prevent the redshirt junior from returning to the field for 2-4 weeks or longer.
Kamara is the Volunteers’ second-leading rusher with 313 yards on the ground and has been a big part of the passing game with a team-high 22 receptions for 260 yards and three scores. He racked up 312 all-purpose yards against Texas A&M two weeks ago and scored Tennessee’s only touchdown in the 49-10 loss to Alabama, where he suffered the knee injuries.
Add this to the list of what was already a long list full of injured star players. All-SEC linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin and defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie are likely both out for the season. All-SEC cornerback Cam Sutton has also been out for an extended period of time after breaking his ankle, and a struggling offensive line continues to shuffle with several injuries as well.
Tennessee (5-2, 2-2) gets a much-needed bye week before traveling to Columbia for a meeting with South Carolina on Oct. 29.
