With the quarterback position finally settled, all eyes were on what players were practicing during Tennessee’s Tuesday practice session as the Vols prepare for Saturday’s regular season finale with the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Tennessee junior defensive lineman Aubrey Solomon suffered a head injury during Saturday’s win against Missouri and missed the final three quarters of the game. During practice, Solomon was working on the stationary bike. The Michigan transfer has also been dealing with a shoulder and knee injury this season.

Along the offensive line, the first team lineup consisted of Wanya Morris at left tackle, Trey Smith at left guard, Brandon Kennedy at center, Jerome Carvin at right guard, and Darnell Wright at right tackle. In recent weeks, Wright was working with the second team as he dealt with an ankle injury.

The second offensive line unit consisted of Marcus Tatum at left tackle, Riley Locklear left guard, Ryan Johnson at right guard, and K’Rojhn Calbert at right tackle. Jahmir Johnson was in attendance and in full pads, but he was being taped up.

Johnson and Carvin also worked in at center, allowing Kennedy to manage his workload.

Wide receivers Marquez Callaway and Jauan Jennings saw limited reps after a physical game against Mizzou on Saturday. The two are expected to be full go for Saturday at this time, however.

On the defensive side of the ball, freshman linebacker Quavaris Crouch was working with the inside linebackers. Crouch has seen time both at inside and outside linebacker in his debut season with UT.

Tennessee will hit the practice field once again on Wednesday. Head coach Jeremy Pruitt is scheduled to meet with the media following practice.

The Vols and Vanderbilt will kick-off the regular season finale in Knoxville at 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network. Saturday will serve as senior day for the Vols.
