There are four Tennessee Volunteers that are set for Thanksgiving Day football on Thursday across the nation.

The Detroit Lions will host division foe Green Bay in the early game on FOX. Tennessee has four Vols in the Lions’ organization including inactive QB Hendon Hooker, but we’ll be seeing the defensive players for Detroit on Thursday with linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin and cornerback Cam Sutton. Former Vol Emmanuel Moseley is on the Lions’ injured reseve list.

The Packers do not have a former Vol on their roster.

The afternoon game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Commanders doesn’t have any Tennessee player connections, although, former tight end Princeton Fant is on the Cowboys’ practice squad.

And, lastly, the NFC West showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks will feature a pair of Vols split between both teams. The 49ers have wide receiver Jauan Jennings while the Seattle Seahawks have defensive end Darrell Taylor on their squad.
