    Tennessee was scheduled to hold a scrimmage on Saturday, but plans changed when 44 Vols had to be held out of practice, most of which were due to COVID-19 related concerns. Jeremy Pruitt met with the media Saturday afternoon to discuss the latest COVID-19 issues within his program.

    Pruitt also discussed his biggest concern at this point of fall camp, when South Carolina prep starts, on what he has seen from his quarterbacks and freshman running back Len’Neth Whitehead.

    Here’s everything Pruitt told reporters during a media session on Zoom:
