The Vols did not receive good news in-between the conclusion of the regular season and the Music City Bowl. Jimmy Hyams of WMML, is reporting the Tennessee defensive lineman Shy Tuttle’s injury is worse than first thought.
Source: Vols DT Shy Tuttle will miss spring ball and might not
return until August or later. Injury was worse than 2015 injury.

Last season, Tuttle broke his leg against Georgia, causing him to miss the rest of the 2015 season. This year, his season was cut short due to a ‘leg injury’. The 310 pound defensive lineman was one of the many highly touted recruits that Butch Jones was able to attain.
We will see how this Big Orange defense rebounds.
