TENNESSEE:  Coach Jeremy Pruitt says quarterback Brian Maurer’s status for Saturday’s matchup at No. 1 Alabama will be a game-time decision after the freshman sustained a concussion last week.

Pruitt had said Monday that Maurer had taken some reps at the previous night’s practice and added that “he’s going to be fine, I’m sure.” Pruitt updated Maurer’s situation after Tennessee’s Wednesday practice.


LOUISVILLE: Coach Chris Mack says forward Quinn Slazinski has been hospitalized with appendicitis that might require surgery.

Asked whether he’d redshirt the 6-foot-8, 215-pound freshman, Mack said Slazinski was in a hospital with the illness and receiving antibiotics.

The coach noted that “the next 24 hours will determine whether he has surgery or not,” and that Slazinski might miss a week after an operation. Mack says it wouldn’t factor in any decision to redshirt Slazinski and would wait “until the last possible second” on that option for anybody on the roster.
