Tennessee Banged Up Entering Alabama Week

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Derek Dooley expects to work from the press box again Saturday against No. 1 Alabama as he recovers from hip surgery, and he has plenty of company on the Volunteers' injury list.

Dooley said tailback Rajion Neal was doubtful for the Alabama game after injuring an ankle last week in a 41-31 loss at Mississippi State. Linebacker Curt Maggitt's status for this week is uncertain because of an injury Dooley called a "stinger issue." Quarterback Tyler Bray hurt his knee, cornerback Justin Coleman sustained a head injury and backup tailback Marlin Lane hurt his quadriceps muscle against Mississippi State, but all three players are probable for the Alabama game.

Dooley underwent surgery Tuesday on a fractured right hip and coached the Mississippi State game from the press box.
