KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee defensive tackle Shy Tuttle will miss the rest of the season with a broken fibula and torn ankle ligament.

Tuttle was injured Saturday in a 38-31 victory over Georgia, which was ranked 19th at the time. He played in each of Tennessee’s first six games and had 10 tackles and one fumble recovery.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced Tuttle’s injury Tuesday and said the freshman “really had developed into one of our playmakers on defense.”

Jones also said defensive end/linebacker Curt Maggitt isn’t close to returning from a hip injury that has sidelined him for the last four games. Jones said Maggitt is “still out an extended period of time.”

Tennessee (3-3, 1-2 SEC) has this week off before playing Oct. 24 at No. 10 Alabama (5-1, 2-1).
