Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said on Wednesday that wide receiver Von Pearson, who is recovering from a high ankle sprain will not play in the Vols next game
on Sept. 27 at No. 13 Georgia.
On the "Vol Calls" radio show that aired Wednesday, Jones said Pearson wouldn't be available for the Georgia game. Jones said "right now we're really working exceptionally hard to get him back for the (Oct. 4) Florida game, but as you know, the body heals in different time frames. It heals when it's ready to heal."
The junior-college transfer has seven catches for 98 yards and a touchdown on the season. He injured his ankle on Sept 6th against Arkansas State.
