The Tennessee Volunteers leading rusher Rajion Neal is listed as doubtful for this Saturday's game versus Alabama after he suffered an ankle injury last Saturday versus Mississippi State, Coach Derek Dooley announced in his weekly press conference.

Neal carried nine times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's 41-31 loss to No. 19 Mississippi State. Neal leads the Volunteers' rushing attack with 112 carries for 500 yards and five touchdowns through six games this season.

Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray went through the entire practice on Monday after suffering from a knee injury and is expected to play versus Alabama this Saturday.

Bray has thrown for 1,730 yards and 16 touchdowns so far this season.

The Volunteers (3-3, 0-3) will face a Alabama defense that ranks first in the nation, allowing only 7.5 points a game. The Alabama defense has yet to give up more than 14 points in a game this season. Alabama is ranked number one in the country in both the BCS and AP Poll.
