KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The pregame coin toss each week has provided insight into the injury problems that have hampered Tennessee all season.Tennessee typically likes to send captains Joshua Dobbs, Alvin Kamara, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Cam Sutton to midfield for the coin toss. But injuries sometimes left Dobbs as the only healthy captain whos in full uniform for each game.That finally changed Saturday when Sutton returned from a fractured ankle that had sidelined him for six games and Kamara came back from a knee injury that caused him to miss two games. Both could play major roles down the stretch as Tennessee chases its first Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title since 2007.When youre able to have those two individuals back on the field, in terms of productivity, it was big for us, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.Both players had big performances Saturday in a 49-36 victory over Kentucky.Kamara rushed for 128 yards on just 12 carries, including touchdown runs of 17 and 29 yards. He did all that while wearing a brace on the left knee that had bothered him enough to cause him to miss games against South Carolina and Tennessee Tech .Sutton broke up two passes and increased his career total of passes defended to 36. That broke the school record of 35 formerly held by Jabari Greer, who played at Tennessee from 2000-03.Its just a tribute to those individuals, Jones said after the game. First of all, these individuals could have easily sat out and said `Im done and started getting ready for the NFL, but instead, they wanted to be a part of this football team and help us win. To me, that speaks volumes about their character and what this football program means to them.Kamara said he always planned on returning this season as long as he was physically able.Weve got unfinished business. ... The seasons not over, Kamara said. I made it my goal, if I can come back, I was going to come back. Here I am.Suttons return was critical for a team that has played much of the season without either of its defensive captains. Reeves-Maybin, a senior linebacker, underwent season-ending shoulder surgery last month after appearing in only four games.His return also came a little ahead of schedule. Jones said after the Kentucky game that the staff had tentatively set this weeks Missouri game as a potential target date for Sutton.Im not surprised with anything Cam Sutton does, to be honest with you, defensive backs coach Willie Martinez said. Hes so consistent day in and day out.Suttons presence will be particularly important Saturday against Missouris pass-oriented offense. Missouri (3-7, 1-5) averages 295.7 yards passing per game to rank second in the SEC. Jones says he considers Missouris Drew Lock a future NFL quarterback and adds that the Tigers have probably as talented a group of wide receivers that weve faced the entire year.Depending on how the LSU-Florida game turns out earlier Saturday, the Missouri-Tennessee game could be critical to the Vols SEC East hopes.To reach the SEC championship game, Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) must win its final two regular-season games and No. 21 Florida (7-2, 5-2) must lose at LSU (6-3, 4-2) on Saturday. The Florida-LSU game figures to end sometime during the first half of the Tennessee-Missouri matchup, and Jones wants to make sure his team isnt caught scoreboard watching.We dont ever look up at the scoreboard, Jones said. Thats kind of our mindset. You just keep your head down and keep playing. We have to worry about the things we can control.Game notes Jones said safety Todd Kelly Jr. and center/guard Drew Wiesman are both day to day after getting hurt during the Kentucky game. Jones said Wiesman is a little ahead of Kelly. Jones also said offensive tackle Chance Hall is expected to practice Monday but that the sophomores status for the Missouri game remains day to day.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Joe Mauer Jersey . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began.

"They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. TAMPA, Fla. -- The Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers insist they arent as bad as their records suggest.The sputtering teams begin the second half of their schedules against each other Sunday, clinging to hope they can eliminate the inconsistency -- and at times, downright poor play -- thats prevented them from being more successful.Chicago (2-6), coming off a bye that gave it extra time to savor a 10-point victory over NFC North leader Minnesota, has already gotten a taste of what a healthy and on-target Jay Cutler back on the field can mean.The Bucs (3-5), whove lost two straight while struggling to run the ball, are clamoring for an opportunity to see whether a mended Doug Martin can change the course of their season.Obviously, it helps to have confidence, and its hard to gain confidence without something good happening, Chicago coach John Fox said. Were in a performance-based business. ... You work very hard in preparation to get that good feeling in the locker room. ... A `W after a game does give you a boost of confidence.Martin, the NFLs second-leading rusher a year ago, has been sidelined since Week 2 with a hamstring injury. He returned to practice this week and is optimistic hell be ready to play against the Bears.With or without Martin, a two-time Pro Bowl selection who rushed for 1,402 yards last season, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he has to find a way to get more out of his team.Weve got to coach them better, No. 1. Thats what a coachs job is, thats what my job is, to try to get your team to achieve up to the talent level that they have, Koetter said.Our record is what our record is; we have to own that. ... But I think we can play to a higher level across the board. That starts with me, first and foremost, the coach added. I have to figure out how to reach these guys, how to motivate them, how to get them on the same page, get them to play together, to play up to the talent level that I think we have. That all starts with me.Some things to know about the Bears and Bucs, one-time NFC Central rivals who are playing for the 57th time:PROTECTING THE FOOTBALL: Bucs QB Jameis Winston has made a concerted effort to minimize turnovers following a 1/3 start. The second-year pro, on pace to throw for more than 4,000 yards aagain, has eight touchdown passes vs.dddddddddddd one interception and a lost fumble in the past three games. Tampa Bay is 1-2 over that stretch, primarily because of problems on defense, where it yielded 1,087 yards, including 857 passing, in losses to Oakland and Atlanta the past two weeks.GETTING HEALTHY: The Bears are getting healthier after being banged-up all year.Cutler (thumb sprain) returned after missing five starts to lead a victory over the Vikings on Oct. 31. Linebacker Pernell McPhee (offseason knee surgery) has played the past two games after starting the season on the physically unable to perform list.Coming off a bye, the Bears may be closer to getting a few more key players back, including nose tackle Eddie Goldman, guards Kyle Long and Josh Sitton, and cornerback Bryce Callahan.Goldman is trying to work his way back from a high ankle sprained suffered in a loss to Philadelphia on Sept. 19.If hes doing well in practice and he feels good about it, then we can take a shot with him, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said. If hes so-so in practice and still hobbling a little bit, then maybe not.ROOKIES ON RISE: There werent many positives for the Bears in the first half of the season. But here are two: rookies Jordan Howard and Leonard Floyd. Howard, a fifth-round draft pick, ranks second among rookies with 505 yards rushing. He ran for 153 against Minnesota, giving him three 100-yard games. Floyd, an outside linebacker drafted with the No. 9 overall pick, has three sacks in the past two games.NEXT MAN UP: With Martin sidelined since Week 2, and backups Charles Sims, Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith going down with injuries, too, the Bucs have used four starting running backs. It has been difficult for Martin to watch.Real frustrating, the fifth-year pro said. Youve seen guys step up. ... and you see guys go down. Its hard to see. You want to get in.SOMETHINGS GOT GIVE: The Bucs are 0-4 at home this season. The Bears are 0-4 on the road.---AP Sports Writer Andrew Seligman in Chicago contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Stitched NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys From China Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Womens NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
