KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee defensive tackle Chase Nelson will miss the remainder of the season after dislocating his wrist in the Volunteers' 59-7 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.
Coach Phillip Fulmer said Sunday the sophomore underwent surgery following Saturday's game and will be out for eight to 10 weeks.
Wide receiver Austin Rodgers, who was limited in Saturday's contest, was also banged up, but Fulmer said he hopes to have the Vols' second-leading receiver back for next week's game against Arkansas.
``He's got a bruised shoulder-type thing going on, so we're hopeful that he'll be back for the weekend,'' Fulmer said. ``But he'll be limited early in the week.''
