''We are trying to marry those two positions,'' Fulmer said. ''We don't have that many healthy bodies at the tight end position, so it won't be unusual to see Cory Anderson lined up at tight end or Chris Brown lined up at fullback. We've done that in the past, and it puts a lot of pressure on the defense.''
Wedding bells at UT?
Senior Justin Reed is injured. Sophomore Brad Cottam is injured. Senior Jake Finlayson is injured. Thus, the Vols are down to one healthy body at the tight end position, sophomore Chris Brown. Fortunately, head coach Phillip Fulmer has a plan in place to bolster the manpower shortage. He's joining his fullbacks (Cory Anderson, David Holbert, Robert Williams) and his tight ends in ... well, holy matrimony.
