Tennessee true freshman lineman injured in car accident

Charles Mosley, a 6-foot-5, 374-pound true freshman two-way lineman for Tennessee, was injured in a car crash on Sunday, according to multiple outlets.

Tennessee Rivals affiliate is reporting that Mosley “suffered a broken fibula and tibia” that is expected to require surgery. The surgery “would most likely" force Mosley to redshirt his first season with the program.

Volunteers head coach Butch Jones told the Chattanooga Times Free Press in a text message that the program was “awaiting further details” on Monday, while the Knoxville News Sentinel reached out to Regional One Health in Memphis, where Mosley is being treated. A nursing supervisor told the News Sentinel that Mosley is in “good condition.”

Mosley played his high school ball at Brighton High School outside of Memphis. He was rated a three-star prospect by Rivals and signed with the Vols over other offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Ole Miss, among others.

He is listed as both an offensive lineman and defensive lineman on Tennessee’s official roster, but was expected to begin his career as a defensive tackle.
