Gerald Riggs is finished as a Volunteer. UTSports.com is reporting that the “lower leg and ankle injuries” Riggs suffered during the 4th quarter of Tennessee’s loss to Alabama Saturday are serious enough that Riggs will “definitely” miss the remainder of the season.
“I’m going to allow the UT Sports Medicine staff and team of orthopedic surgeons to continue directing my care,” Riggs said. “I think that gives me the best opportunity to return successfully from this injury.”
It’s not yet clear just how severe this injury is and whether it is career-threatening. Ditto the Thoughts and Prayers for Jason Allen post, this time for Gerald.
