KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee senior running back Marlin Lane was back at practice on Tuesday after using the spring break to rest his injured left wrist.

Coach Butch Jones said Lane would still be limited in the remaining spring sessions, but his presence alone was a positive sign.

Jones also plenty of good things to say about freshman receiver Josh Malone, who made some big plays in Tuesday’s practice.

“He’s playing with a lot of confidence,” Jones said. “You can see the speed, burst and acceleration that we saw on film when we recruited him.”
