Multiple sources are reporting that Tennessee wide receiver Jason Croom will miss the TaxSlayer Bowl against Iowa due to a knee injury. Vols wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni confirmed the news after practice on Tuesday, per Knoxnews.com:

Azzanni said Croom injured the knee in Sunday’s practice.
“It’s very disappointing,” Azzanni said. “I feel sorry for him. Here’s a guy that’s busted his tail and gotten better all season long and done everything I asked of him. Just doesn’t say a word and works his tail off. The game gets taken away here at the end, one he’d love to play in. First bowl game.”
