KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Heading into Tennessee's home game with South Carolina head coach Derek Dooley said that playing some tough SEC teams has taken its toll on the Vols.
Dooley commented Monday during his weekly news conference that there were "no real injuries of significance, but we have a ton of guys that are banged up."
Dooley continued to say that when "you play two teams like that back-to-back and you're in the middle of the season, we have to get these guys healed, fresh and ready to go. But we also have to practice, so that's going to be a little challenge this week getting our guys healed."
Tennessee hosts South Carolina Saturday at 7:15 (ESPN2).
