Tennessee starters Cedric Tillman, Jaylen McCollough as well as back up Kwauze Garland are not available for Saturday’s rivalry matchup at Neyland Stadium.

Tillman is missing his third straight game after undergoing “tight rope” ankle surgery after the Vols win over Akron. Jalin Hyatt, Bru McCoy and Ramel Keyton have stepped up in Tillman’s absence and will be asked to do the same today.

McCollough is out for the first time this season after being arrested and charged with aggravated assault last Sunday. Josh Heupel was coy about whether McCollough would be available as the process with the KPD is still ongoing.

With the safety out, Doneiko Slaughter, Wesley Walker and Andre Turrentine could all see increased action.

Garland hasn’t played since Tennessee’s season opening win over Ball State. The reserve linebacker totaled one tackle in that win. Garland’s absence shouldn’t affect Tennessee’s linebacker rotation unless other injuries occur.

Questionable Vols Gerald Mincey and Kamal Hadden are both dressed out and available for the game. Their roles are to be determined in the rivalry matchup.

Kick off from Neyland Stadium is at 3:39 p.m. ET. Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Jenny Dell are on the call for CBS.
