Tennessee Backup QB Quinten Dormady dealing with shoulder issue

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady is considering his options due to a shoulder issue, according to a source close to the program.

Reports surfaced Thursday night of a shoulder injury Dormady had been dealing with this season.

Dormady did not take a hit in practice this week.

Dormady had been experiencing shoulder issues but was cleared to play against South Carolina. He took two snaps against the Gamecocks which included a 13-yard run.

The junior started the first five games of the season but lost the starting job to redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano following the 41-0 loss to Georgia.

Guarantano replaced Dormady in the fourth quarter against Georgia. Guarantano also entered the 17-13 game against UMass in the fourth quarter. The coaching staff was looking for a “spark” on offense according to coach Butch Jones after the game.

The 6-foot-4, 222-pound quarterback had completed 55.5% percent of his passes this season for 925 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also threw 6 interceptions.

Freshman Will McBride will likely be elevated from third to second on the depth chart depending on what Dormady decides.
