Vols’ Locklear has surgery for ‘very small’ tear in knee
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — University of Tennessee reserve offensive lineman Riley Locklear has undergone surgery for a meniscus tear in his knee.
Locklear is a sophomore guard from Huntington out of Spring Valley High School.
The injury occurred Saturday during Tennessee’s 38-12 loss at No. 2 Georgia. Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said Wednesday during the Southeastern Conference coaches’ teleconference that Locklear had surgery for a “very small” meniscus tear.
Pruitt says Locklear would “probably be out at least 10-15 days, and then he’ll be back ready to go.”
Locklear has appeared in four of Tennessee’s five games this season.
