Tennessee RB John Kelly Cited For Marijuana Possession: What Does It All Mean?
The bad Tennessee season got even worse after star RB John Kelly was cited for marijuana possession.
Because Tennessee’s season isn’t having enough problems …
According to WATE, star RB John Kelly and LB Will Ignont were cited for marijuana possession after being stopped by police for a headlight issue on Kelly’s car.
Kelly was charged with a misdemeanor, and now he’s suspended for the Kentucky game.
Kelly leads the Vols with 615 yards and six touchdowns as one of the team’s few bright spots. Again Alabama he averaged over five yards per carry, but only ran 12 times for 63 yards – the team netted 64.
The Vols have yet to win an SEC game, but with Kentucky up this week, Southern Miss to follow, and winnable games against Missouri and Vanderbilt still to go – along with a home date with LSU – there’s still a chance to come up with a strong finish and go bowling.
But for an offense that hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown for the last three games, it couldn’t afford to lose Kelly.
Freshman Tim Jordan was second on the team in rushing against Alabama, with a grand total of seven yards. Ty Chandler is the team’s second-leading rusher with 118 yards.
