17 Players Who Have Started A Game For Tennessee Are Either Injured Or Dismissed

Rarely, if ever, do you see a team as decimated by injuries as the 2016 Tennessee football team.

It seems like every week, every day almost, another Volunteer player goes down. As of now, 17 players who have started a game for Tennessee are either not with the program or battling injuries.

Yes, that's right. Seventeen players. Vols beat writer Jesse Re Simonton has done a nice job cataloging the carnage, and he tweeted out the details.

In case you were counting, that's an entire offensive line (!!) plus players from every position group on defense. It is mind-boggling to look at.

Some positive news for the Vols? They have a bye week this week before going on the road to South Carolina.
