Steve Ensminger, who coaches the tight ends, says that McKenzie will probably spend the whole week of practice on defense.
*Freshman defensive end Jomarcus Savage did not practice on Tuesday with a sore shoulder, but the MRI report was good and he should be back soon, Tuberville said.
*Jake Ricks bruised his knee, but the injury isn't serious, Tuberville said.
*There is still no word yet on running back Reggie Hunt's academic status.
*The Tigers worked in full pads today against the scout teams.
*Brent Slusher, who is waiting to get cleared health-wise to practice, sprained his ankle at his dorm last night.
*With McKenzie splitting time on defense, true freshman Vance Smith may have a chance to see action at tight end, Ensminger said. Also, John Douglas, who can also play fullback, is seeing action at the tight end slot.
*Ensminger says that Terrell Zachery is his most improved player this season at the inside receiver slots.
