Jalen Reeves-Maybin will miss Georgia game

Team captain and senior linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin will not dress for Saturday's game against Georgia, the Vols announced.

Reeves-Maybin sprained a muscle in his shoulder two weeks ago against Ohio. He returned for the Vols' game against Florida, but was only on the field for less than a quarter.

 

Junior Cortez McDowell is listed as the backup to Reeves-Maybin on the depth chart.

Junior cornerback Justin Martin will also miss Saturday's game, per team decision. Middle linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr., will miss his third straight game with a high-ankle injury.

 

Coach Butch Jones said Monday he anticipated Reeves-Maybin to play against Georgia.
