More bad news for the Vols at receiver

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Add Denarius Moore's name to the list of injured Tennessee receivers.

First, there was the news Tuesday that senior Austin Rogers is out for the season with a torn ACL. The latest bit of bad news is that Moore, the Vols' top returning deep threat, is also out for eight to 12 weeks after breaking a bone in his left foot.

More than anything, what this all means is that the freshman receivers the Vols signed, namely Nu'Keese Richardson and Marsalis Teague, had better be ready to play early and often this season.

And if the Vols can't line up and run the ball, they could really be in trouble.

On a positive note, top running back signee Bryce Brown has drawn rave reviews from teammates and from those on the Vols' strength staff. His talent is obvious, but the thing that has really stood out to everybody to this point is his work ethic and maturity.

Sounds like another freshman who'll be heard from early this season.
