Vols WR Tillman has ankle surgery

September 30, 2022

Vols WR Tillman has ankle surgery … Tennessee WR Cedric Tillman, one of the better prospects at the position for the 2023 draft, underwent a surgical procedure that the team hopes will speed his recovery from a high-ankle sprain suffered two weeks ago in the Vols’ win over Akron. Tillman reportedly had what is known as ‘tightrope’ surgery in which a high-strength suture is implanted an the ankle. Tillman, who had been on pace for a second-straight 1,000 receiving yard season prior to the injury, did not play in last week’s win over Florida and gets a week off this week with the Vols on their bye. The program is non-committal as to the timeline for his return but needless to say hope its sooner rather than later with the 8th ranked Vols scheduled to play at LSU next week and then host 2nd-ranked Alabama the following Saturday.
