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.

Get a full rundown of Thursday's practice on Evan Woodbery's blog.

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.
