KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter is 100 percent healthy after tearing his left ACL early in a loss at Florida last September.
That's welcome news to coach Derek Dooley and quarterback Tyler Bray.
Before his injury last season, Hunter was leading the Southeastern Conference in receptions and receiving yards per game. He finished the year with 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns in a little more than two games.
Bray said Hunter is "looking better than ever" based on summer workouts and early fall camp practices.
The 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior hauled in a Tennessee freshman-record seven touchdown passes in a reserve role in 2010 and believes he's a better player now than he was last year because of an offseason of watching film and training in the weight room.
