Tennessee quarterback Jonathan Crompton has been released by doctors to resume all football-related activities following surgery on his right elbow in April.
The right-handed-throwing Crompton was released by Dr. Richard Jones of Southeastern Sports Medicine last week as scheduled, just in time for summer workouts. Crompton took part in voluntary drills early this week, including a seven-on-seven passing session Monday.
The procedure to remove two or three loose particles from the elbow was not deemed mandatory, although postponing the procedure could have resulted in more pain during the season or caused the joint to lock up in the future. Crompton endured persistent soreness throughout spring practice.
Crompton, the heir apparent to 2007 starter Erik Ainge, threw for 266 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in April's Orange and White Game.
