Shane Reveiz OK after heart surgery

Tennessee head athletic trainer Jason McVeigh reports that freshman linebacker Shane Reveiz underwent a successful cardiac surgical procedure Wednesday in Atlanta.

"He is expected to make a full recovery and return to football when released by his physicians," McVeigh said, adding that Reveiz will stay in Atlanta until the weekend but should resume classes next week.

Reveiz is a Knoxville native whose brother, Nick, was a special teams regular for the Vols this year and whose father, Fuad, and uncle, Carlos, were All-SEC placekickers in the 1980s.
