Xavier Mitchell injured during Cal-Tennessee game

The Tennessee defensive end Xavier Mitchell not seriously injured, says coach.

Xavier Mitchell injured during Cal-Tennessee game The Tennessee left defensive end Xavier Mitchell was carried off the field with an injury yesterday, during the final moments of the college football game between Cal and Tennessee. He waived to the fans while being carried away, a gesture met with clapping for his efforts. At the time the type of injury to Xavier Mitchell was unknown, but today the Vols' head coach said during the Phillip Fulmer Show,

 "That was a real concern, but he made it back to the plane. They did a CT and an X-ray at the hospital last night, and he has a concussion, quite likely, but there's no damage to his spine or anything, which was the original concern. We're very thankful for that."

 This is a great news for the UT fans, after a scare that the broken pinky finger on the throwing hand of Vols quarterback Erik Ainge could be an issue. No.12 California put up 471 yards in Week 1, as the Bears dropped the No.15 Tennessee Volunteers 45-31 at Memorial Stadium. Nathan Longshore went 19-for-28 for 240 yards and two touchdowns, and Justin Forsett ran for 160 yards and a major for the Bears. Erik Ainge was 32-for-47 for 270 yards and three touchdowns, while Lucas Taylor tallied 102 receiving yards for the Volunteers.
