Tennessee offensive lineman Chance Hall is out after suffering a knee injury.
The Tennessee offensive line suffered a blow this week as sophomore offensive lineman Chance Hall underwent surgery on his knee on Thursday.
The injury is not ACL related, and when Hall will return is unclear at the moment. Hall was supposed to start the season at right tackle even after missing spring practice due to a shoulder injury that also required surgery.
As a freshman last season, the 6-foot-4, 318-pound Virginia native appeared in 10 games with seven starts for the Volunteers after injuries cut into depth on the line. Hall ended up earning Freshman All-American honors from 247Sports.
Behind their big line, the Volunteers rushed for 2,908 yards and 32 touchdowns last season, with Jalen Hurd passing the 1,200-yard mark. The running back duo of Hurd and Alvin Kamara is arguably one of the best in the nation and will look to lead the Volunteers to a SEC championship this season.
Tennessee starts off the season with a Thursday night game in Knoxville against Appalachian State on September 1.
