Tennessee linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary and running backs coach Jerry Mack visited with the media on Tuesday as the Vols continue their preparations for Florida. 

For Jean-Mary, the linebacker depth is growing thanks to the return of Juwan Mitchell, who saw his first action in a year against Akron, and the play of freshman Elijah Herring. Jean-Mary discusses his growing depth and the challenge of defending Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson. 

The Vols running back room is not at full strength at this point in game preparations with injuries to starter Jabari Small as well as freshman Dylan Sampson. Mack fielded questions about managing the position and preparations this week not being at full strength. 

Saturday’s contest will be aired in the 3:30 pm eastern time slot on CBS in front of a sold out Neyland Stadium crowd. The game day promotion inside the friendly confines will be Checkered Neyalnd, as fans will coordinate whether to wear an orange or white shirt to the game based on their seat location.

ESPN’s College GameDay will also be on hand as Tennessee seeks its first win over its rival in six years.
