KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee linebackers Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Dillon Bates have joined the growing list of Volunteers missing spring practice with injuries.
Vols coach Butch Jones said Tuesday that both players would miss the rest of the spring, but should be ready to return by early June. Jones didn't specify the nature of the linebackers injuries, but Reeves-Maybin watched Tuesday's practice with his left arm in a sling.
Reeves-Maybin had a team-high 105 tackles last season, including 14 for loss.
Other Tennessee players missing spring practice with unspecified injuries include safety/kick returner Evan Berry, offensive tackle Chance Hall, wide receiver Josh Malone, offensive guard Jashon Robertson, tight end Joe Stocstill, running back Joe Young and defensive linemen Derek Barnett, Andrew Butcher, Kyle Phillips, Shy Tuttle and Kendal Vickers
