Tennessee linebacker and defensive end Curt Maggitt will be out for upwards of eight weeks, reports Barrett Sallee of Bleacher Report.
The redshirt senior suffered a hip injury while playing on punt coverage, head coach Butch Jones revealed Monday.
Maggitt serves as Tennessee's go-to pass rusher on defense. He led the Volunteers with 11 sacks last season.
He was chosen first-team preseason All-SEC after earning second-team All-SEC honors last season.
