Tennessee linebacker Sapp out with stress fracture in foot

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee reserve linebacker Quart’e Sapp is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his foot.

Volunteers coach Butch Jones said Wednesday that Sapp will miss “an inordinate amount of time.” Jones added that he “can’t really put a time frame on it.”

Sapp, who is from Alpharetta, Georgia, played in each of Tennessee’s first four games and made three tackles.

Tennessee (2-2, 0-1 SEC) hosts Arkansas (1-3, 0-1) on Saturday.

Jones also said wide receiver Alton “Pig” Howard’s status remains uncertain for the Arkansas game. Howard missed the Vols’ 28-27 loss to Florida last week with an injury that hasn’t been specified.
