True freshman running back Toney Williams will miss the upcoming season after suffering a torn ACL last week during offseason workouts, Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin said.
Williams impressed coaches during spring drills, however the Atlanta native might have been headed for a redshirt even before last week's injury.
Tennessee returns senior tailback Montario Hardesty and sophomore Tauren Poole, while highly touted recruits Bryce Brown, the nation's top overall player according to Rivals.com, and David Oku have arrived on campus.
Williams is expected to undergo surgery in the near future.
