Healthy QB competition excites Tennessee's Jones

AP - Sports

The presence of four healthy quarterbacks gives Tennessee coach Butch Jones reason for optimism that the Volunteers could have better results this season.

Three of the four scholarship quarterbacks on Tennessee's roster got hurt last season as the Vols ended up starting three players at the position. All four quarterbacks are back this year and were fully healthy Friday as the Vols kicked off spring practice.

Senior Justin Worley, sophomores Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman and redshirt freshman Riley Ferguson are competing for the starting spot in a wide-open competition. Worley, Peterman and Ferguson all dealt with injuries last season.

Jones hasn't set a timetable on when he will choose a starting quarterback. Jones said he'd decide on a starter whenever someone emerges as the clear-cut choice.
