Tennessee stepped up from just helmets to shells on the third day of fall camp. Even with the ability to pop pads on Sunday, head coach Butch Jones wasn't too happy at the start of practice.
Jones made the entire players staff do extra conditioning at the start of practice.
The "Circle of Life" drill returned with the appearance of shoulder pads. Over 10 head-to-head battles took place before practice resumed.
The Tennessee assistant coaches spoke to the media following practice. You can listen to what they had to say below.
