Tennessee (2-2, 0-1 SEC) will play at Missouri (2-2, 0-1 SEC) Saturday in Week 5.

Kickoff is slated for noon EDT and SEC Network will televise the divisional matchup.

Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel met with media on Monday and provided an update on quarterback Joe Milton III. Milton III started the Vols’ first two games against Bowling Green and Pittsburgh. He left the game against Pittsburgh after suffering a lower body injury.

Hendon Hooker started for Tennessee at quarterback while Milton III was sidelined.

Milton III replaced Hooker in the fourth quarter at Florida. Hooker left the contest after suffering an injury.

“Joe was in a situation where he could play, wasn’t at full 100 percent,” Heupel said. “During the week, we got him some work, but not at the same type of numbers that he would’ve gotten if he was 100 percent.

“Anticipate just through him playing the other night, he didn’t reinjure or aggravate anything. Continue to think that he’ll get healthier as this week goes on.”
