Vols Harrell to Play vs Florida

Tennessee Football Coach Philip Fulmer's got to be thinking...it's a miracle..

Defensive Lineman Justin Harrell, thought to be out for the season, now will PLAY for the Vols against Florida this Saturday!

days after suffering a torn biceps muscle against Air Force.

Doctors felt the injury would end his season..

  Fulmer says Harrell approached him Tuesday, saying he felt fine and could play vs. the Gators.

  Fulmer says it's highly unusual for anyone to come back so quickly with no real pain.

But, Harrell's return is a one shot deal.

He's scheduled for Surgery next week to repair blood vessels in the arm.

Doctors say he's O.K. to play this week with it padded, but without surgery within 14-days the muscle will atrophy due to lack of blood flow.
