Vols Football Loses Another Player to Injury

On the gridiron, the Tennessee Vols will be without wide receiver Austin Rogers for the entire 2009 season.

Rogers tore his ACL in his right knee on Friday and will undergo reconstruction surgery in the coming weeks.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior from Nashville had his best season as a sophomore, starting all 14 games in 2007.

He finished second on the team with 624 yards on 56 catches and four touchdowns.

Last season he caught 14 passes for 180 yards.

Rogers is the second Vol to go out with an ACL before Practice even starts.

Top Running Back Recruit Toney Williams tore his ACL last month and will also miss the season.
