Inky has surgery
Inquoris Johnson Inky

Posted Dec 21, 2006


Tennessee junior defensive back Inquoris Johnson underwent surgery Thursday at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. UT head athletics trainer Jason McVeigh reported that Johnson was doing well after the lengthy procedure and is recovering.

McVeigh said Johnson's doctors expect the Atlanta native to be released from the hospital by early next week.

Inquoris Johnson sustained what McVeigh called a traumatic injury while making a tackle late in the Vols' Sept. 9 win over Air Force. Initial surgery was performed the next day at UT Medical Center. Since then, Johnson has been receiving daily physical therapy by the UT Sports Medicine staff.

Johnson, who had an interception, two additional pass breakups and 10 tackles in his two games played, served as an honorary team captain for Tennessee?s 16-13 win over Alabama on Oct. 21.
