Cedric Tillman is a senior wide receiver for the Tennessee Vols. Last year he had a breakout season with 64 catches for 1,084 yards and 12 touchdowns. He started this year with nine catches for 164 yards against a ranked Pittsburgh team. 

In his next game, he suffered an ankle injury when he went for an acrobatic catch along the sideline. As Tillman was in the air, a defender crashed down on his lower leg. The injury caused him to miss the team’s next four games.

Luckily for Tillman, the team stayed undefeated in his absence and cruised to the number one seed in the CFP playoffs. But, with a challenging game against an SEC rival Georgia is upon them. Georgia is known for their defense, but after suffering some injuries, they might seem hobbled in the game. 

Tillman returned last Saturday against Kentucky and caught four passes for 22 yards. He will need to increase his production to help Tennessee pull off the upset.

Starting cornerback Warren Burell suffered an upper-body injury against Pitt and has been ruled out for the season after having surgery. Third-year RB Len'Neth Whitehead has yet to play a snap after suffering a shoulder injury during fall camp.
