Update on Lady Vols injuries

Two Lady Vols injured in Thursday's win over Ole Miss remain on day-to-day status with one cleared to practice and the other continuing to undergo treatment.

Sophomore forward Alex Fuller has been cleared to practice, but her activity could be restricted because of the injury to her right eye. Fuller was hit in the right eye Thursday in the 81-69 win over Ole Miss and had to leave the game. She sustained swelling and bruising.

She joined freshman point guard Cait McMahan in the locker room. McMahan injured her left elbow during a scramble for a loose ball off a missed free throw in the second half and had to be removed from the game.

Jenny Moshak, the assistant athletics director for sports medicine, announced Friday that Fuller will be allowed to practice with her participation contingent on how her right eye responds. Fuller also was injured in the right eye area during a scramble for a loose ball last month against Vanderbilt so this is the second head injury.

McMahan underwent further diagnostic testing Friday and those results revealed no structural damage to her elbow. She will be treated symptomatically on a day-to-day basis.

The availability of the players for Monday's LSU game will be determined by how they respond to treatment and whether or not they can perform safely on the court.

The Tennessee team is scheduled to practice Saturday and then leave Sunday. Monday's game time is 7 p.m. Eastern (ESPN2, Lady Vol Radio Network).
