Tennessee Vols coach Butch Jones announced on Tuesday, that receiver Cody Blanc had torn an achilles tendon and will be out for the year. Cody had hurt the Achilles during workouts last Friday. Cody had played in 21 games for the vols in 2 years and was expected to be more implented into the passing game this year. If not the passing game, then he was for sure going to be on the specials team where he was pretty good last year. His only real highlight came last year when he had a 43 yard reception against Alabama.
Cody was a 3 star player out of high school and was a hometown guy in Knoxville. With him being gone for the season, coach Jones will have to change up the depth chart at receiver and find another special team talent to fill Cody’s spot. With returning starters like WR Marquez North, WR Pig Howard, Cody was sure to be 3rd or 4th on the depth chart. It has not been released yet how long it will take him to rehab the injury.
The Vols first game will be against the Utah State Aggies on Aug 31st. I’m sure coach Jones is thinking, lets just stay healthy.
