Tennessee OT Gilliam out for year with torn ACL (Yahoo Sports)

Tennessee offensive tackle Jacob Gilliam will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament Sunday during a 38-7 victory over Utah State. Gilliam, a fifth-year senior and former walk-on from Knoxville, had been placed on scholarship after spring practice and had opened the year as Tennessee's starting left tackle.
