Tennessee Vols true freshman defensive back Bryce Thompson took a scary fall in UT’s win against the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday.

Thompson fell on his neck/head while defending a pass in Tennessee’s end zone and laid motionless for several terryifying minutes.

On Monday, Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt told reporters that Thompson is going through standard tests and that he “seemed fine”.

This echoes what Thompson tweeted on Sunday.

It’s too early to tell if Thompson will be available for Tennessee’s matchup against Missouri on Saturday, but it’s certainly good news that the young defensive back didn’t suffer a more serious injury.
