Vols' Brewer out for season

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee starting strong safety Brent Brewer has torn cartilage in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

The injury to the sophomore from Tyrone, Ga., is the third major one this year for the Volunteers, who entered the season with depth concerns. Top wide receiver Justin Hunter is also out for the season with a torn ACL, and quarterback Tyler Bray is recovering from a broken thumb.

Brewer had started every game this season and had 24 total tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack.

Coach Derek Dooley will shuffle the secondary lineup in his absence by moving Prentiss Waggner to safety from cornerback, a position with more depth. Free safety Brian Randolph will continue to play safety, where he's started the past two games.
