KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee faces an uncertain quarterback situation as it heads into Saturday's game at No. 10 Missouri.
Justin Worley was injured and ineffective last week in a 45-10 loss to top-ranked Alabama, which leaves the junior's status as Tennessee's starting quarterback in question. Tennessee coach Butch Jones said Monday that Worley was day to day after hurting his right thumb against Alabama.
Even if Worley's cleared to play, Jones could take his time in determining his starter against No. 10 Missouri. Freshman Joshua Dobbs showed flashes of potential against Alabama after replacing Worley in the second half.
Jones said the competition also could include redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman and freshman Riley Ferguson. Peterman had surgery on an injured right hand last month, but he recently had his cast removed.
