    The Tennessee football team held their seventh fall camp practice on Wednesday morning. However, the team was one quarterback shorter than normal.

    Tennessee redshirt sophomore quarterback Brian Maurer was not at practice on Wednesday. Although, as of late Wednesday morning, Tennessee QB Brian Maurer has not officially entered his name in the transfer portal.

    Maurer’s absence from practice is especially interesting in conjunction with an Instagram post from Maurer on Tuesday night. In it, Maurer wrote a cryptic post about his immediate future to go along with a picture of him in a Tennessee jersey.

    “They took my dream after 4 days…,” Maurer wrote on Instagram Tuesday night, which was then edited. “That’s okay cause I’m a soldier. #18out”

    The caption was then later changed to, “I’m a soldier” with a green heart.

    There is no confirmation on the correlation between Maurer’s Instagram post and his absence from Wednesday’s practice. However, it is an interesting connection as Tennessee continues to progress through their quarterback competition.
