Vols' Moore expected to be OK after hard hit

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says senior wide receiver Denarius Moore should be fine after a hard hit on the second play of the Vols' loss to Alabama.

Moore took the ball on an end-around run and was hit hard as he was slipping by DeMarcus Milliner's shoulder. The Tatum, Texas, native did not play in the rest of the 41-10 loss as a precaution.

Dooley said Sunday he'll have a better idea of Moore's status on Monday but expects him to be day-to-day.

The coach says he thought Milliner's hit was vicious but not outside the rules of play.
