Tennessee freshman quarterbacks Riley Ferguson and Josh Dobbs are both listed as backups behind starter Justin Worley in the new Vols depth chart released Monday morning.
Worley briefly lost his job to Nathan Peterman, who endured a miserable first half in the Vols’ 31-17 loss at Florida on Saturday. Peterman is no longer listed on the depth chart. The No. 2 quarterback is listed as Dobbs "or" Ferguson.
Jones said Peterman underwent surgery on his hand on Sunday and would miss at least a month. Peterman injured his hand during the game but Jones said he was not sure when.
Worley helped move Tennessee’s stagnant offense in the second half, but he completed only 10 of 23 passes and threw two interceptions.
Peterman was 4-for-11 for 5 yards. He threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.
Although Dobbs did not travel with the team to Florida, Jones said that was "zero indication" that Ferguson was ahead in the battle to be No. 2 quarterback.
