OK, you move Malik Jackson over from DE and make him a DT that is a force to be reckoned with. Done. Now that that's been accomplished, you repeat the process and start over from scratch.

Now, this is supposed to be temporary while Malik Jackson nurses a "sprained knee" that is only supposed to take two weeks to heal. OK, I'm sorry; I forgot there was magic medicine inside Neyland Stadium. Who on God's green earth heals a knee injury in two weeks and returns to full contact?
DL coach Lance Thompson has a short long road to make a sophomore comparable so that the gap left by Jackson gets filled. Work fast, Coach T, so in case that two week sprain lasts up to Montana, or Cinnci, or Florida or.... By the way, is Wall's Achilles fully healed? 100 percent, really? At least he is familiar with the position
