Last month, Charles Mosley was involved in a car wreck that the Tennessee Highway Patrol deemed serious enough that the 2014 Tennessee signee was “lucky to be alive.”

Unfortunately, as a result of that accident, the start of Mosley’s collegiate career has been put on hold.

Head coach Butch Jones confirmed to that Mosley will likely miss the entire 2014 season because of injuries incurred in the wreck.  The lineman sustained a broken leg in the accident, one in which he was a passenger in a vehicle that was being driven by a family member.

“We don’t anticipate him being back for this year,” Jones said according to the recruiting website. “He’s been back since reporting day, so he’s getting the rehabilitation that he needs. He’s still around the meetings… He’s always up. He’s always positive. And to be able to have him around our team is very, very good — good for him and good for the team, as well.”

Mosley was a three-star member of UT’s 2014 recruiting class, rated as the No. 25 guard in the country.  He was expected to begin his Vols career as a defensive tackle.

    I expected that he would miss this year after that devastating wreck. Hopefully he will be in school and recover for next year.

    Reblogged this on Shayn Roby's College Sports and commented:
    Shayn Roby’s Take: It’s a shame that such a tragedy occurred, period. However, by the grace of our Lord, Mr. Charles Mosley survived. Whether he plays another down of football in his life or not, the editor of Shayn Roby College Sports wishes Charles Mosley Godspeed in his recovery. May the hands of the Great Physician exercise His will in the healing of this young man’s injury.
