To add injury to insult, Justin Worley exited Tennessee's game against Alabama after he hurt his thumb.

The Daily Beacon reported the junior quarterback was replaced by freshman Josh Dobbs:

Prior to leaving the game, Worley had completed eight of 16 passes for 120 yards. He'd also thrown two interceptions, in general having a hard time all game against a stout Crimson Tide defense.

He has been ruled out for four weeks with torn ligaments.
