KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd has joined the list of Volunteers who won’t be available Saturday at No. 8 Texas A&M.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Ryan Robinson said Friday that Hurd didn’t travel with the team to Texas A&M (5-0, 3-0 SEC) and will not be playing “due to an undisclosed injury.”
Hurd has a team-high 407 yards rushing on 101 carries. Hurd’s absence will create a larger role for running back Alvin Kamara, who has run for 165 yards on 38 attempts this season.
The ninth-ranked Volunteers (5-0, 2-0) also won’t have linebackers Darrin Kirkland Jr. and Jalen Reeves-Maybin and cornerback Cam Sutton available for Saturday’s game. Kirkland has a high ankle sprain, Reeves-Maybin has a shoulder injury and Sutton has a fractured ankle.
