 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer plans to seek a sixth year of eligibility for two of his players.
Fulmer said the Vols will file a waiver with the NCAA for senior defensive back Antonio Gaines and senior tight end Brad Cottam.
Gaines missed his freshman year following shoulder surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2007 season after tearing a knee ligament during the Southern Miss game.
Cottam has endured a slew of injuries - five operations and a car accident - during his time in Knoxville, and Fulmer hopes he will be able to suit up next year.
``If the NCAA is truly about the student athletes, I think we'll hopefully win that,'' he said.
Meanwhile, the coach said wide receivers Josh Briscoe and Lucas Taylor will both be ready to play when the Vols face No. 15 South Carolina on Saturday.
Briscoe, who suffered a concussion against Alabama, has been given a clean bill of health, and Taylor, who has been hampered by a sore toe since the Mississippi State game, is progressing well, according to team officials.
``Briscoe is 100 percent, and Lucas has still got a bit of a turf toe,'' said Fulmer, adding that Taylor is better this week than he was last week.
