Vols safety Todd Kelly Jr. to miss Florida game with knee injury

Vols safety Todd Kelly Jr. to miss Florida game with knee injury”

A knee injury that has plagued No. 23 Tennessee senior safety Todd Kelly Jr. since last season has sidelined him indefinitely, sources told ESPN, confirming multiple reports. Kelly had an MRI on Friday morning and will be consulting with more doctors in the days to come.

Kelly, a senior, played almost every snap last season and finished with 71 tackles.

Saturday's game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, Sept. 16. He even lost 10 pounds this offseason to attempt regaining some speed, thinking that weight was the issue, rather than his knee. If he undergoes surgery, he likely would have the option of taking a medical redshirt this season and returning next year as a fifth-year senior.

The coaching staff and Kelly Jr. were unaware of the severity of his injury, Griffith reports, which is why he played through it.

Kelly Jr. was the catalyst for Tennessee signing several of the top in-state talent in the 2014 class, reaching out to them during the recruiting process and encouraging them to help rebuild the Vols' program.
