What Jeremy Pruitt said about QB Brian Maurer suffering another concussion
The Tennessee Volunteers have turned to freshman Brian Maurer as their starting quarterback, but he’s had a rough couple of weeks.
For two games in a row now, he’s left the action with a concussion. Based on what we know now about head injuries, that’s a really scary thing.
After the game, though, coach Jeremy Pruitt seemed nonchalant about Maurer’s injury, saying the Vols will wait and see what happens (via 247Sports):
“They’re evaluating Brian. So we’ll see what happens. Jarrett (Guarantano) did some really nice things while he was in the game. So we’ll go back and just reevaluate like we do every week.”
With concussions in back-to-back weeks, Maurer could end up missing the rest of the season. That isn’t known at this time, but head injuries are nothing to laugh at.
