The news release included a statement from Vol trainer Jason McVeigh noting that "Everything went well and we expect a full recovery."
Justin Harrell may be swallowing harder these days but Tennessee fans are breathing easier. Here's why:
One … Harrell is an outstanding football player who is capable of being All-America in 2006.
Three … counting Tony McDaniel, who turned pro rather than return for his senior year in 2006, the loss of Harrell would've taken away three of Tennessee's top four defensive tackles.
Finally … the Vols already lost six members of their 2005 front seven. A major surgery on Harrell would've made it a clean sweep. John Chavis is an excellent defensive coordinator but replacing an entire front seven without a significant drop-off is asking for a miracle.
Guess I need to buy a better radio, huh?
