Report: Tennessee WR Jauan Jennings injured in workout, will have surgery
SEC football insider Trey Wallace had some concerning news to pass along to Big Orange Nation on Thursday: Tennessee WR Jauan Jennings suffered a knee injury that required surgery.
Wallace, citing “multiple people close to the situation,” reported that Jennings had injured his knee in a workout. He added that the injury has already been evaluated. Though Jennings is expected to have surgery, it does not sound like he will be sidelined for long. After initially reporting that Jennings would be back for fall camp, Wallace called in to FOX Sports Knoxville to clarify that if Jennings is not able to go at the start of fall camp, he should be ready for Tennessee’s first game (Georgia State on Aug. 31) at the latest.
A multi-year contributor, Jennings is entering his redshirt senior season with the Volunteers. Jennings has appeared in 37 games during his UT career, recording 87 catches for 1,184 yards and 10 touchdowns.
