Vols to begin spring football practice Thursday

This is the first full spring practice for Tennessee in nearly two years, after COVID-19 concerns cut the spring season short in 2020.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — It's football time in Tennessee! Well, sort of. 

Tennessee football resumed team activities on Monday after a COVID-19 pause last week, the program announced. Spring practice will begin on Thursday.

Spring practice was originally slated to start on Tuesday.

This is the first full spring practice for Tennessee in nearly two years, after COVID-19 concerns cut the spring season short in 2020.

This is also the first spring practice under new head coach Josh Heupel and his staff.

Something to watch for, the installation of Heupel's high-powered offense. It's a different style than the Vols ran under former coach Jeremy Pruitt.

Tennessee will also hold its Pro Day on Thursday to give former players a chance to showcase their abilities for NFL scouts and coaches.

Spring practice will culminate with the Orange and White game on Saturday, April 24.
