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.
