Lincoln practices, expected to kick versus Ole Miss

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee placekicker Daniel Lincoln has returned to practice and will kick against Mississippi if he is fully healthy.

The senior has missed five games this season and hasn't kicked since the Volunteers' 32-29 double-overtime win against UAB on Sept. 25. He has completed all seven of his field goal attempts this season, including four from a distance of 40 yards or greater.

Coach Derek Dooley said Tuesday that Lincoln looked good at practice and will play if he continues to kick well during practice.

Lincoln's replacement, freshman Michael Palardy, has made five of his seven attempts and has a long field goal of 39 yards against South Carolina.
