KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — When receiver Vincent Dallas left the football program last week, it opened up a spot on Tennessee’s kickoff return team.

True freshman cornerback Malik Foreman will get first crack at the job.

Foreman is listed with JaRon Toney in the Vols’ new depth chart.

There were no other changes.

Devrin Young, who started the season as the top kickoff returner, is expected to return to practice this week. He broke a bone in his hand early in the season.

Dallas averaged 22.2 yards on 13 returns this year. His long return was 36 yards.
