Tennessee senior safety Todd Kelly Jr. is expected to miss the 23rd-ranked Vols' SEC opener Saturday at No. 24 Florida with a knee injury that could require season-ending surgery, sources told GoVols247 on Friday.

As GoVols247's Grant Ramey reported Friday evening, Kelly has been bothered by a nagging knee injury since last season, and he could decide to undergo season-ending surgery to address the issue. If he undergoes surgery, he likely would have the option of taking a medical redshirt this season and returning next year as a fifth-year senior.
A team spokesman declined to comment Friday night.
