KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- As of Monday afternoon, Derek Dooley said the Vols' injury situation is "nothing too serious."
Offensive lineman Dallas Thomas (sprained knee) and defensive end Ben Martin (sprained ankle) both suffered injuries in the Vols' win Saturday over Cincinnati. However, Dooley expects both linemen to play Saturday when Tennessee visits Florida (3:30/WVLT).
As for kick returner Devrin Young (collar bone), Dooley said the former Bearden standout is "getting close." Dooley added that if Young isn't able to play against Florida, he should be ready for action in Tennessee's next game (Oct 1, at home against Buffalo).
