Tennessee Volunteer Wide Receivers Lose Their Green Jerseys

The Tennessee Volunteer coaching staff has taken away the receivers green jerseys:

Receivers Chris Hannon, Jayson Swain, Josh Briscoe, Robert Meachem, and Lucas Taylor were all wearing green jerseys at the beginning of Monday’s practice. Within minutes, managers came out with orange jerseys for the players to change into.

For anyone who might not know, green jerseys designate a player as someone who should not be tackled during practice for safety reasons. Might this explain the receivers’ difficulty in making plays in games? If they’ve been wearing green for practice all season, they haven’t had a lot of practice being physical.
