KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee starting quarterback Matt
Simms says he will play against South Carolina, even after
spraining his left knee.
The junior says he hurt his knee on a run during the second
quarter of the Volunteers' 41-10 loss to Alabama. He returned
during the third quarter but was eventually replaced by Tyler Bray
after taking another hit.
Simms has been receiving extra treatment this week and likely
will wear a brace on Saturday but is still fully participating in
practice with the Vols.
Coach Derek Dooley says he does not know yet if he will have
Bray take snaps against the Gamecocks. Bray earned playing time
against the Crimson Tide even before Simms was hurt because of
strong performances in practice.
