Three of Tennessee’s best players were limited during Tuesday’s practice due to injuries.
Running backs Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara, as well as cornerback Cam Sutton were all in no-contact green jerseys, according to Patrick Brown of the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
Sutton was not on the field when Tennessee allowed Florida to score a 59-yard, go-ahead touchdown during a 28-27 loss on Saturday. He was seen leaving the locker room holding an ice pack to his face, according to Brown.
However, coach Butch Jones shut down rumors of Sutton having a broken jaw during his weekly press conference Monday, and said he expects the cornerback to play on Saturday against Arkansas.
Cam Sutton, Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara all in green at practice today. Marquez North appeared to be pretty limited.

Butch: Obviously having Cam Sutton off the field on Florida’s final drive didn’t help, but we still needed to get a stop.

Cam Sutton just left the locker room with a bag of ice on his mouth/face.
