Tennessee running back to miss remainder of spring practices

Tennessee scrimmaged for the first time during spring practices at Neyland Stadium on Wednesday.

Fourth-year head coach Josh Heupel met with media following the Vols’ scrimmage. He discussed sophomore running back Cameron Seldon being out for the remainder of spring practices.

“With Cam, unfortunate, just the early part of spring ball, had an injury to his shoulder, had surgery on it,” Heupel said. “We’ll kind of evaluate where we’re at as the rehab process gets started and base our decisions off of that and kind of where we project where he’s going to be.”

Heupel also discussed opportunities for other running backs with the 6-foot-2, 222-pound Seldon being out.

“D-Samp (Dylan Sampson) has been awesome with just energy, leadership, maturity and the understanding of our offense,” Heupel said. “The young guys continue to take steps forward.

“Khalifa (Keith) has done a really nice job. He’s been extremely physical, was today as well. I thought he finished going forward all the time. DeSean Bishop, a young guy that got nicked up last year, his growth inside of our program, for him to get back on the field and showcase his skillset, handled the rehab process extremely well and I love the competition that he’s brought. (Patrick) Wilk and Hunter (Barnes) have done a really nice job.”
