Report: Tennessee QB Quinten Dormady dealing with shoulder issue that may require surgery
Tennessee junior QB Quinten Dormady started the season as the Volunteers’ starting quarterback, but coming off of the bye a couple of weeks ago, he lost the job to redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano.
Though Dormady played a couple of snaps when Guarantano’s helmet popped off against South Carolina last weekend, it was Guarantano’s show in the 15-9 loss.
Now, Dormady may be looking at missing some extended time, as reporter John Brice has said Dormady is dealing with an injured shoulder that may require surgery:
Multiple people, including in the @Vol_Football program, tell me Dormady has a shoulder injury that will require surgery. Battling a while

According to Brice, the surgery could end Dormady’s season, requiring a lengthy rehab process.
Neither quarterback has done much for the Vols’ offense this year, as Tennessee hasn’t scored a touchdown in the last 10 quarters.
That will be tough for Guarantano to change this weekend, as the Vols head to Tuscaloosa to take on No. 1 Alabama. The game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Central time and can be seen on CBS.
