News surfaced Tuesday that redshirt freshman quarterback Riley Ferguson would not be returning to the Tennessee football team.
The news is surprising, given the amount of practice reps Ferguson has earned since arriving in Knoxville.
It is unclear why Ferguson will not be a member of the Tennessee football program moving forward, but Butch Jones did comment on the matter while at the SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla.
Tennessee's official football Twitter account tweeted out Jones' take on the matter:
With Ferguson now not part of a close quarterback battle that was between himself, Justin Worley, Josh Dobbs and Nathan Peterman, the race looks like it is shaping up between Worley and Dobbs.
Jones commented on the race, as well:
