The hits keep on coming for the Tennessee Volunteers. After losing two games in a row, the Vols are in danger of losing two more star players to injury.
On Tuesday, the Vols confirmed defensive standout Jalen Reeves-Maybin will miss the remainder of the 2016 college football season after undergoing another shoulder surgery.
Now, there are reports that Tennessee fears running back Alvin Kamara could have LCL and meniscus injuries.
Vols head coach Butch Jones would not specifically comment on Kamara’s health.

After starting the season as a backup to Jalen Hurd, Kamara has been seeing more and more of the workload as the season goes on. Through seven games, Kamara has rushed for 313 yards and three touchdowns while adding 260 yards and two additional scores on 22 receptions.
Against Texas A&M two weeks ago, Kamara had the biggest game of his career and one of the most impressive statistical performances of the last two decades.

Hopefully Kamara will be able to return to the field sooner rather than later to keep his momentum rolling.
The Vols have the weekend off before returning to action next weekend against the South Carolina Gamecocks on the road.
