Tennessee will complete its road game at Texas A&M with one less player.
Vols safety Nigel Warrior was ejected during the second quarter of Tennessee’s visit to Kyle Field to play the Aggies after throwing a vicious block during an Alvin Kamara punt return.
The block was deemed to be targeting and upheld upon official review. The result was a double whammy for the Vols, eliminating a big return and removing Warrior from the game.
Have a look at the hit:

SEC Country’s Mike Griffith reports that Warrior recently told Vols coach Butch Jones that he’d never played special teams before:
