Tennessee LB “grazed by a stray bullet” Sunday, in class Monday

Tennessee linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin was shot in the arm early Sunday morning, but Tennessee officials say he did not require major medical treatment and was back in class on Monday. All things considered, that is cause for a major sigh of relief.

According to the Associated Press, a Tennessee athletics spokesperson claims Reeves-Maybin was merely grazed by a stray bullet while standing in a street outside a party early Sunday morning. According to police, Reeves-Maybin felt a sharp pain in his arm after someone started shooting.

According to the reports, it looks as though there is no threat to Reeves-Maybin’s playing career or practice availability this offseason. That said, getting grazed by a bullet is not exactly like stubbing a toe.

As a freshman in 2013, Reeves-Maybin played mostly on special teams last year and recorded 11 tackles.

    If hoodlums ever learn to shoot accurately there will be a lot more dead people. We can’t seem to get their guns, but please keep them away from target ranges. It’s madness. More American people die in Chicago from gunshots than the Mid East now. How many more are wounded. How or when could it ever stop?

    Hoping that this incident shapes his life in a positive way and allows him to understand how fortunate he is.
