WACO, Texas (AP) — Jalen Hurd made the decision to become a receiver for one season at Baylor after being one of the top running backs in the SEC.
After going about 21 months without playing a game, Hurd's transfer from Tennessee and transition to primarily catching the ball instead of carrying it seem to be working out with the Bears.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee running back John Kelly has spent spring practice encouraging and coaching his younger teammates while reminding each of them that they could be needed at any time.
Kelly can use his own rise up the depth chart as an example.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The unexpected departure of running back Jalen Hurd hasn't hindered Tennessee's rushing attack.
In its first two games since Hurd left the team, Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) has averaged 276.5 yards rushing per game and 8.4 yards per carry. Tennessee's robust rushing attack has compensated for the defense's recent inability to stop the run heading into Saturday's game with Missouri (3-7, 1-5).
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd says he had "multiple injuries" this year, including a concussion, and that he left the Volunteers in part to play for an offense that better suits his talents.

The junior from Hendersonville said "it was not a decision made rashly but one I have been thinking about for quite some time."
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — All the turmoil surrounding Tennessee over the last week has lent some intrigue to an otherwise uneventful matchup with Football Championship Subdivision program Tennessee Tech.
Once ranked as high as ninth, Tennessee (5-3) has lost three straight games to fall out of the Top 25 entirely. The Volunteers also have spent this week dealing with fallout from the surprising announcement Monday that leading rusher Jalen Hurd was leaving the team .
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's John Kelly started making an impression on his teammates before he ever got a chance to deliver an impact on the playing field.
Those same teammates have no doubt that Kelly will capably fill the giant hole that Alvin Kamara's injury and Jalen Hurd's departure have created in Tennessee's rushing attack.
"In my opinion, he's one of the best backs in the SEC," Tennessee offensive tackle Brett Kendrick said.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — All the excitement surrounding Tennessee during its surge into the top 10 has morphed into anxiety about a program that has fallen out of the rankings entirely.
Tennessee (5-3) has dropped three straight games, including a stunning 24-21 setback Saturday against two-touchdown underdog South Carolina. A roster decimated by injuries now is being hit by other defections, most notably Monday's announcement that leading rusher Jalen Hurd intends to transfer.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd has indicated he plans to transfer, leaving the Volunteers without one of the most prolific runners in school history as they attempt to snap a three-game skid that has dropped them out of the Top 25.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he expects Jalen Hurd to play Saturday against No. 1 Alabama after the junior running back missed a 45-38 overtime loss at Texas A&M last week with an unspecified injury.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee barely survived in its season opener and the ninth-ranked Volunteers understand they likely won't be so fortunate in their next game if they don't play any better.
A team that opened the season with its highest ranking in a decade had all its vulnerabilities exposed Thursday in a 20-13 overtime victory over Appalachian State. It was a game Tennessee could have, and probably should have, lost.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Exactly nine years to the day after it pulled off one of the greatest upsets in college football history, Appalachian State nearly did it again.
A couple of missed kicks and an inability to recover an overtime fumble prevented the Mountaineers from getting it done.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee believes its passing game is good enough to complement an exceptional running game.
Now it's just a matter of proving it.
"We have to do a better job of catching the ball as an entire offensive unit and putting the ball where it needs to be as well," Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. "I do see progress. We've worked very hard on it all summer, and we worked hard on it in this stage of the game in training camp through five...
