Tennessee receiver Jauan Jennings was hurt in Monday’s 42-41 double-overtime win over Georgia Tech and will be out indefinitely, coach Butch Jones said Wednesday.
Jones didn’t specify the nature of Jennings’ injury, which kept the junior out of the second half of the victory, but sources told ESPN that Jennings dislocated his wrist.
Jennings underwent surgery Tuesday. No timetable for his return has been given.
When Jennings exited the game Monday, Tennessee didn’t have a wide receiver in uniform who had a career touchdown catch until Marquez Callaway caught two scoring passes in the second half.
Jennings finished the 2016 season with 40 receptions for 580 yards and seven touchdowns, including the go-ahead score in a victory over Florida and a Hail Mary reception to beat Georgia.
Jones also said offensive tackle Drew Richmond would be available for Saturday’s game with Indiana State (0-1). Richmond was suspended for the Georgia Tech game due to a violation of team rules.
