Well, it’s that time of the year. Fall camps and more injuries. Tennessee, you’re up.
In an interview yesterday, Vols coach Derek Dooley said that his defensive front seven has taken another depth hit with the injury to defensive tackle Malik Jackson. Jackson has a sprained right knee and will be out for about two weeks.
“We are now zero out of seven, that’s right,” Dooley said. “But we weren’t very good in the front seven last year, so some people would say that’s the best news we’ve had all season.
“Think about it. You heard that saying, ‘The good news is we’ve got everybody back. The bad news is we’ve got everybody back.’ The bad news is we’ve got zero out of seven, the good news is we’ve got zero out of seven.”
Got it. I think.
Regardless, Jackson, a senior who spent his first two collegiate years at USC, had 48 total tackles for the Vols last year, 29 of which were solo.
