The injury toll continues to grow for the Tennessee Volunteers football team, just days after news came out that WR Austin Rogers suffered an ACL tear and will miss the 2009 season.

The Tennessee training staff announced Tuesday afternoon that WR Denarius Moore had suffered a broken bone in his foot and will miss 8-12 weeks recovering. That time frame means that Moore could miss up to four games during the 2009 SEC Football season.

Moore's injury means that the Tennessee Volunteers football team will begin the season with only one of their top six receivers from the 2008 season. Leading receiver Lucas Taylor, wide receiver Josh Briscoe, and running back Arian Foster all played in their final seasons of eligibility last year.

Gerald Jones is the only receiver that will be available on opening day for Tennessee who caught more than 13 passes during the 2008 SEC football season.
