Vols dismiss Danny O’Brien from team


KNOXVILLE, TN (WJHL) –  The following is a statement from the University of Tennessee Athletics:

“Defensive lineman Danny O’Brien has been dismissed from the Tennessee football team for violation of team rules. This news is unrelated to the injury he suffered against Texas A&M. However, should he require any additional care, it will be provided by the University of Tennessee.”

O’Brien appeared to suffer a head injury during the Texas A&M game Saturday and was taken off the field on a stretch. He later tweeted that he was alright.
