Despite missing most of Tennessee’s season opener against West Virginia and sitting out against ETSU, Ty Chandler is the Vols’ leading rusher with 20 less carries than Tim Jordan. Chandler has averaged 75.3 rushing yards a game if you exclude his minimal playing time against West Virginia before he suffered a big blow that took him out of the game, but he only has one rushing touchdown.

Both Madre London and Jeremy Banks are tied for the team lead in rushing scores, notching three apiece. London actually has the best rushing average of any of Tennessee’s running backs so far this year, but he has the fewest carries of any of the backs as well.

After Jordan’s 118-yard performance against West Virginia to start the season, he’s run for just 166 yards on 56 carries in Tennessee’s last five games. He’s only totaled 52 yards on 28 carries in SEC play this year.

Josh Palmer scored on a 20-yard run against ETSUand has received a few more carries on sweeps in other games this season.
