Head coach Butch Jones has already said that there is no timetable for Jackson’s return, which could be a potentially devastating blow for the Vols. Despite all the talent the team has on offense, none of it can be utilized without a strong offensive line.
Granted, Jackson isn’t the biggest at 6-foot-2, 308 pounds, but his strength and determination are going to be missed as Tennessee looks to continue improving under Jones.
Campus Sports will update Jackson’s story as any new information becomes available.
