''It was a straight ACL tear; nothing else was wrong,'' Gandy said. ''He told me there'd be a five- to six-month rehab ... if I got after it and did what I was supposed to do, I'd be back before the season. So far, so good.''
Gandy, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound rising senior from Darlington, S.C., started three games at right guard and one at center last season. He also saw considerable playing time at tackle, making him UT's most versatile O-lineman.
