Tennessee wide receiver Jauan Jennings is expected to be sidelined as many as 12 weeks with a dislocated wrist, VolQuest.com reported on Tuesday.

Jennings is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday, one day after he was injured in the first half of a 42-41 double-overtime victory over Georgia Tech.

The junior had three catches for 17 yards before sustaining the injury. Jennings led the Volunteers with 580 yards receiving and seven touchdowns last season.

Sophomore receiver Marquez Callaway stepped up in Jennings’ absence on Monday, reeling in four receptions for 115 yards and two touchdowns against Georgia Tech.
