Tennessee cornerback Warren Burrell will miss the remainder of the 2022 season after undergoing season ending surgery, Vols’ head coach Josh Heupel announced Monday.

“Warren had surgery and will be out here the rest of the season,” Heupel said.

Burrell suffered an upper body injury in overtime during Tennessee’s win over then-No. 17 Pitt.

The senior corner started the first two games of the 2022 season where he totaled 12 tackles and one pass break up. Burrell has started 22 games in his four-year career including starting all 14 games he’s played in since Josh Heupel took over.

With Burrell sidelined, sophomore corner Christian Charles has started opposite of Kamal Hadden.

Both Burrell and Charles have struggled this season in their opportunities with Hadden being the Vols’ best corner to date.

Junior college transfer Dee Williams has yet to make his Volunteer debut as he continues to battle an injury he suffered during fall camp. Williams is Hadden’s backup corner on Tennessee’s depth chart and could earn opportunities once he returns to the field.

Williams warmed up ahead of Tennessee’s matchup with Florida but was not able to give it a go in the ranked win.
