Jones says he's opening up Vols' QB competition

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he's opening up the Volunteers' quarterback competition.
Junior Justin Worley has started each of Tennessee's first three games and is still listed atop the depth chart for Saturday's game at No. 19 Florida, but Jones said Monday that he would start whichever quarterback has the best week of practice.
Worley is 35 of 57 for 372 yards with five touchdown passes and one interception for the Vols, who lost 59-14 at No. 2 Oregon last week. Redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman has played each game as a backup and has gone 6 of 12 for 40 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Jones also didn't rule out the possibility of starting Riley Ferguson or Josh Dobbs, two freshmen who haven't played a down this season.
