KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee reserve guard Austin Sanders will miss the season because of a biceps injury that will require surgery.

Volunteers coach Butch Jones announced Sanders’ injury Thursday.

Sanders, a sophomore from Cleveland, Tennessee, played five games last season as a redshirt freshman.

Sanders is the second Tennessee guard to sustain a biceps injury during training camp. Marcus Jackson, a returning starter and the most experienced Tennessee offensive lineman, has a similar injury that likely will knock him out for the entire season as well.
