Jauan Jennings undergoes surgery, working towards reinstatement

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - Tennessee Volunteer wide receiver Jauan Jennings is working out with the team, but has yet to be reinstated, according to a report from SEC Country

Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt said Jennings had arthroscopic knee surgery and is working towards getting added back to the roster.

“He’s just rehabbing his knee, had a scope done, and he’s doing everything we’re asking him to do and being a good teammate,” Pruitt said. “Reinstatement? We’re going day by day."

The coach added Jennings has more work to do to before he gets back on the field.

“Right now it (reinstatement) is irrelevant because of the injury he has, and he’s getting his treatment. But he’s doing what we’re asking him to do," Pruitt said.

Jennings missed the majority of the 2017 season after breaking his wrist in the Vols' season opener against Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
