    The crowd for the largest football game ever played is beginning to file in. Check out some of the scenes from around Bristol and here are some other pregame notes:

    NFL reps: Scouts from the Chargers, Bears, Colts and Browns are in attendance

    Injuries: No huge surprise here since Tennessee has maintained that he’s healthy all week and he looked fine in practice, but Joshua Dobbs is fully in uniform and looks fine in pregame warmups. Tight end Jason Croom is in uniform and going through warmups as well. He’s expected to play after missing the opener against Appalachian State.

    Defensive tackle Shy Tuttle is in uniform as well – 247Sports has reported he will not start, but will play (he did work with the second-team defense). Offensive tackle Chance Hall isn’t in uniform.

    Starting lineups: Here’s what was announced before the game for the Vols:

    In warmups, it looked like Jauan Jennings was working with the starting offense and Preston Williams was with the second team.
