Tennessee athletic department spokesman Ryan Robinson said that Kelly was taken to the hospital for a ''precautionary evaluation and was released.'' Robinson didn't specify the nature of Kelly's injury.
Kelly, a freshman from Detroit, has 21 carries for 88 yards in a reserve role this season. He recovered a fumble on a kickoff return to set up a touchdown in Tennessee's 38-31 victory over Georgia last week.
Tennessee (3-3, 1-2 SEC) has this week off before visiting No. 10 Alabama (5-1, 2-1) on Oct. 24.
