Justin Worley Injury: Tennessee QB Replaced by Josh Dobbs After Hurting Thumb
The Tennessee Volunteers were getting blown out by the Alabama Crimson Tide, and to add insult to injury, they also lost their starting quarterback to an apparent thumb injury.
The Daily Beacon Sports Twitter account reported that starting quarterback Justin Worley sustained a thumb injury and that freshman Josh Dobbs was replacing him.

Before getting hurt, Worley had completed just 50 percent of his passes while throwing for 120 yards and two interceptions against Alabama. After going down 35-0 before halftime, this isn't what the Volunteers needed.
This will be Dobbs' first playing time in his college career. According to Rivals.com, Dobbs was a three-star recruit out of Georiga and was the No. 20 quarterback in the country for the 2013 recruiting class.
Tennessee won't be beating Alabama, but the real question is how serious the thumb injury is. With upcoming games against No. 5 Missouri and No. 11 Auburn, the Volunteers are going to need all of the help that they can get.
