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

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.
