Volunteers coach Butch Jones announced the severity of Gilliam's injury at his Tuesday news conference.
Gilliam, a fifth-year senior and a former walk-on, had been placed on scholarship after spring practice and had opened the year as Tennessee's starting left tackle. Jones said junior-college transfer Dontavius Blair, redshirt freshman Brett Kendrick and freshman Coleman Thomas would compete for the open spot this week.
