COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Junior Evan Berry started in place of safety Micah Abernathy in Tennessee’s game at Texas A&M on Saturday.
Abernathy went through warmups and is dressed for the game.
Abernathy is the fourth defensive starter missing a start today due to injury, joining linebackers Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder), Darrin Kirkland Jr. (ankle) and cornerback Cam Sutton (ankle).
Vols tailback Jalen Hurd is also missing, having not made the trip.
Coach Butch Jones said Hurd has a “lower-extremity” issue, but that would not rule out the possibility that the UT running back also has a concussion.
A Vol Network reporter said that Hurd has suffered concussion-like symptoms this week.
Abernathy was seen in a walking boot earlier this week, according to various reports.
Abernathy entered into the Texas A&M game in the first quarter, however, pressed into action when Emmanuel Moseley suffered a shoulder injury.
