Freshman Ben Martin Underwent Surgery...Good News

Sunday it was reported here that Ben Martin suffered an injury in Saturday night's scrimmage. There were reports that you could hear him screaming in pain from the injury. Sunday's MRI showed what looked like an injury to the ACL. UT head athletic trainer Jason McVeigh says the extent of Martin’s injury will be known after the surgery, which is being performed by Drs. Greg Mathien and Russell Betcher of the Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic. News is that Martin will only be out two to four weeks and may be back for the Florida game! That's right just two to four weeks. GoVolsXtra has reported just that saying...

Tennessee freshman defensive end Ben Martin doesn’t have any torn knee ligaments
as many in the program first believed following his injury in the scrimmage on
Saturday night.
A deep bruise to the bone should leave him out hopefully closer to the two weeks. This is great news to fans and coaches. All the evidence you need is in this one quote for Coach Phillip Fulmer “Ben Martin will be an All-American here.”
