KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Freshman receiver Josh Smith will miss Saturday’s game against South Carolina with an undisclosed injury.

Smith was held out of practice late this week. In the pregame, he watched from the sidelines in warmups and did not dress out.

Smith’s absence likely means more snaps for redshirt freshman Jason Croom, who has shared co-starter duties with Smith this year.
