06:02 PM ET 10.29 | In the lopsided loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, Tennessee Volunteers starting quarterback Justin Worley suffered a thumb injury to his throwing hand. Now, according to reports, we've learned the significance of that injury as well as how much time Worley will miss, which will be about the whole month of November. In his absence, the reins of the Volunteers offense will now be turned over to true freshman Joshua Dobbs, who completed five-of-12 passes against Alabama on Saturday, and also ran the ball three times for 19 yards. He'll now get a chance to see what he can do for an entire outing against Missouri on Saturday.

Just put in another D1 scholarship player and process someone. It's the SEC, man.

Actually, after 5 years of Hamilton wrought chaos, UTK is starting fresh this year with yet another new coaching staff (albeit a better one than the two before).

Peterman is out with an injured hand.
Worley is out with an injured thumb.
RSF, Ferguson is out with a leg injury.
At Bama, Jones had to burn Dobbs' red shirt.
That leaves Patrick Ashford as backup.

Now that Dobbs' red shirt is history, play him. I don't care if Worley's thumb heals before the end of the season, he's backup/cleanup for the rest of the way.
