UT's Gerald Jones could miss 2-3 games with hand injury

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee starting wide receiver Gerald Jones has a broken bone in his left hand and could miss at least two or three games.

That would keep out the Volunteers' leading receiver from the past two seasons for games against No. 11 Oregon, No. 4 Florida and UAB.

Jones, who is a senior, led Tennessee (1-0) in a 50-0 win over Tennessee-Martin on Saturday with 86 yards on six catches. He left the field clutching his left hand midway through the third quarter after catching a 37-yard pass from Matt Simms, his longest reception of the game.

Dooley also says wide receiver Denarius Moore is questionable for Oregon on Saturday after suffering a "banged-up ankle," and offensive guard Jerrod Shaw is questionable with a right ankle injury.
