The Tennessee Volunteers play host to the rival Florida Gators this weekend, but they will have to take the field without star defensive back Cam Sutton.
On Monday morning, Vols head coach Butch Jones addressed the media and announced Sutton will miss several weeks after suffering a broken bone in his ankle during the team’s 29-18 win over the Ohio Bobcats last weekend.

Sutton, who many believe to be one of the top defensive backs in the SEC, has eight tackles, one pass defensed and an interception this season.
Taking the field without Sutton for the Florida game could make things more difficult than the Vols initially had planned.
Along with the absence of Sutton, the Volunteers defense will be without linebacker Quart’e Sapp, who is set to miss the remainder of the year after suffering a torn ACL.
Kickoff between the Vols and Gators in Knoxville is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
