Hendon Hooker was 13-of-23 passing for 221 yards and two touchdowns when he was sidelined after taking a hit midway through the fourth quarter with Florida leading 31-14.

While Hooker was not in concussion protocol according to Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel, he said during his Monday press conference that the Virginia Tech transfer quarterback’s status was uncertain ahead of the Vols conference road tilt with Missouri on Saturday in Columbia, Missouri.

Joe Milton stepped in after Hooker’s exit, making his first appearance at quarterback since leaving the Pittsburgh game with an injury in the third quarter.

As for Milton getting the start at Missouri should Hooker be unavailable, Heupel wasn’t ready to commit to that on Monday.
