Tennessee’s football team is going through some tough times right now.

The Volunteers have lost three in a row and their best offensive player is transferring. To make matters worse, one of their most talented defensive players sent a cryptic tweet on Sunday that made it seem like he was done playing football. 

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones explained that Kongbo isn’t not done playing real-life American football, but he is finished playing virtual association football.

“That’s why we don’t hit the panic button,” Jones said. “He lost in a FIFA game and those were soccer cleats that he tweeted out.”
