Highlights from the Vols' eighth practice
Evan Woodbery on the Vols' eighth practice of spring
Tennessee’s last tune-up Thursday before a key scrimmage offered plenty of homework before players take the field Saturday at Neyland Stadium.
“Today we made a lot of mistakes, but we threw a lot at them. That goes hand in hand,” said offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian.
The scrimmage will be somewhat similar to the first practice game two weeks ago, but coaches said players would be given a bit more independence.
“We’re going to put them in a bunch of different situations -- red zone, overtime, things like that,” Bajakian said. “I’m continuing to evaluate who the playmakers are.”
Running back Marlin Lane returned to practice after missing one day due to a family illness. Receiver Jacob Carter was out with an undisclosed injury. Read more notes on the blog, and check GoVolsXtra later this afternoon for video and photos from Thursday’s session.
