Karl hurts back, won’t miss significant practice time

Knoxville (WVLT-TV/ News Sentinel), Summertime on the UT campus means conditioning time for the Vol football players.
That's exactly what linebacker Ryan Karl was doing when he suffered a freak accident recently in the weight room.
A source close to the UT Athletic Department told our media partner, The Knoxville News Sentinel that Karl lost his balance while stepping off a weight bench during routine exercises.
While Karl could be limited early during Fall practice, the good news is that the senior is not expected to miss any playing time.
UT opens pre-season camp on Aug. 3. The Vols first game is Sept. 1 at California.
