A pair of starters had returned to practice this week and looked likely to play against Auburn on Saturday.
But Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said Wednesday that cornerback Cameron Sutton and running back Alvin Kamara will be game-time decisions when the Vols host Kentucky at noon ET on Saturday.
Butch says Alvin Kamara and Cameron Sutton will be game-time decisions against Kentucky. Both have practiced past two days.

Sutton fractured his ankle against Ohio on Sept. 17 and has been out since, while Kamara has been sidelined with a knee injury since the Alabama game on Oct. 15.
With Jalen Hurd’s sudden departure from the program, getting Kamara back in the backfield would be more timely than ever. Before his injury, he had rushed for 313 yards on 64 carries, and was reported to be considering leaving early for the NFL draft.
