Results negative on Lindsey Moss' MRI

The results of the MRI on Lindsey Moss' left knee were negative, and her practice status remains day to day.

Moss, a freshman shooting guard from Alpharetta, Ga., hasn't practiced since Saturday after she experienced some knee discomfort. Her left knee was slightly hyperextended in the exhibition game against Carson-Newman last week.

Because the knee is the same one she had surgically repaired in high school for a torn ACL, the Lady Vols' medical staff wanted to be extra cautious and opted for the MRI to make sure everything was structurally OK. Moss had the MRI done Wednesday, and the results was ready today.

Debby Jennings, the associate athletics director for media relations, said Thursday that the results indicated nothing was amiss. Jennings said that Moshak will continue with Lindsey Moss' course of rehab, and she will remain day to day. It is possible she could practice this week - the season opener is Sunday against Stetson at 1:30 p.m. - but Moshak will make the determination. When Moss is released, she will be worked gradually into drills and practice.

"Jenny said she's better, but she wanted to rest her again," coach Pat Summitt said afer Wednesday's practice. "I thought she'd be back, but it's early, and I told Jenny if she's got any swelling, irritation, we'll err on the side of caution. Let it play out and go from there."

The team was off Thursday and will return to practice Friday afternoon.
