Tennessee corner Kamal Hadden is inactive for the Vols’ Senior Day matchup against Missouri. Cedric Tillman was listed as available but did not end up dressing out for the game.

Hadden has been banged up for much of the last month, missing Tennessee’s games against both Alabama and UT Martin. The former junior college and Auburn corner was active against both Kentucky and Georgia but didn’t play against the Wildcats and played just sparingly against the Bulldogs.

Injuries have plagued Tennessee’s defensive back room this season but Hadden is the only one unavailable against Missouri besides Warren Burrell— who is out for the season.

With Hadden sidelined, Christian Charles, Doneiko Slaughter and Brandon Turnage will see larger roles.

Hadden had been Tennessee’s best corner earlier in the season and has tallied 28 tackles, two interceptions and one forced fumble in his second season in Knoxville.

Third string quarterback Tayven Jackson is unavailable for the third straight game after suffering an injury in mop up duty against UT Martin.

Kick off between the Vols and Tigers is at noon ET. CBS is broadcasting the game.
