Volunteers coach Butch Jones announced the severity of Young's injury and the length of time he would be sidelined while responding to a fan's question on his ``Vol Calls'' radio show Wednesday. Jones described the injury as ``kind of a fluke thing'' and said Young slipped while running a route and put his hand out to brace his fall.
Young moved to wide receiver this spring after rushing for 140 yards on 33 carries last season. He caught a 9-yard touchdown pass, had a 58-yard kickoff return and also returned two punts for 21 yards last week in a 45-0 victory over Austin Peay.
Tennessee hosts Western Kentucky on Saturday.
