(AP) - Seven Tennessee players have undergone successful surgeries since the end of the 2011 season.
Tennessee announced Monday that arthroscopic knee surgeries were performed on sophomore offensive lineman Alex Bullard, junior linebacker Greg King, freshman running back Marlin Lane and sophomore defensive lineman Marlon Walls. Each is expected to be fully recovered by spring practice.
The Volunteers also say sophomore defensive lineman Daniel Hood, freshman linebacker Curt Maggitt, and junior defensive back Prentiss Waggner underwent shoulder surgeries. The trio is expected to be limited to non-contact drills during spring practice but should be able to fully participate in summer workouts.
The Vols (5-7) finished their season with a 10-7 loss at Kentucky, ending their hopes for a bowl bid.
