KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The No. 11 Volunteers took to Hallam Field on Tuesday, continuing their preparations for No. 25 Georgia on Saturday (3:30 p.m., CBS).
The media saw just one period of practice, mainly light individual work and some basic special teams reps. Several veterans were absent, but per policy we are not allowed to report who is and is not at practice.
There were only a few players in green, non-contact jerseys on Tuesday: cornerbacks Baylen Buchanan and Emmanuel Mosley, as well as defensive end Austin Smith.
A couple quick, notable observations …
* Offensive tackle Chance Hall looked strong during run blocking drills. Last Saturday, Hall returned from a knee injury and played all 77 snaps against Florida.
* A couple players (Micah Abernathy and Evan Berry Jr. among them) muffed a few punt/kickoff returns.
* Receiver Preston Williams did not participate in stretch and was seen jogging laps.
