Surgery for Childress

Tennessee senior forward Ryan Childress sustained an injury to his right knee while playing in a pickup game recently and will undergo a surgical procedure to correct the injury early next week.

The Tennessee medical staff has said that his return will be determined by his progress following the surgery.

A 6-foot-9 native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Ryan Childress averaged 2.3 points and 2.4 rebounds for UT's team that set a school record with 31 wins and won the 2008 Southeastern Conference title.
