Tennessee could get two key players back against Kentucky
Tennessee coach Butch Jones had some good news and bad news regarding injuries at his Monday news conference.
The bad news? Safety and return specialist Evan Berry is done for the year. The good news? Key players on both sides of the ball might return to action against Kentucky this weekend.
Butch Jones said Alvin Kamara and Cam Sutton could play v. Kentucky. Will know more on Wednesday.

Sutton is a cornerback of All-SEC caliber who has sidelined with a fractured ankle since Sept. 17. With seven interceptions and two punt return touchdowns in his career, the senior’s return would bolster a secondary that just lost Berry.
Kamara, meanwhile, reportedly suffered knee injures in the Volunteers’ loss to Alabama on Oct. 15. After running back Jalen Hurd announced his intentions to transfer last week, Kamara is in line for the brunt of the workload once he reaches full health.
Jones expects to have more information Wednesday. Tennessee (6-3, 2-3) hosts the Wildcats (5-4, 4-3) at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday.
