VIDEO: Justin Hunter Returning For Tennessee Scrimmage

Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver Justin Hunter is still working back from a knee injury suffered during last year's Florida Gators game that ended his season. He's not yet 100 percent, saying he still isn't able to make his cuts like he'd like and that he still thinks back to the injury sometimes. But he's set to participate in Tennessee's Saturday scrimmage, making for his first appearance at Neyland Stadium since last year's 156-yard game against the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Derek Dooley says Hunter needs to get past thinking about playing hurt, even though the Vols aren't going to allow anyone to tackle him on Saturday. Hunter expects to be his old self by the summer and to be good to go in time for the regular season.

Pairing Hunter again with Da'Rick Rogers will give emerging quarterback Tyler Bray perhaps the SEC's best pair of top receivers, if Hunter's able to regain his form.
