The first full pads practice of the Josh Heupel era is complete. Tennessee football went through its third practice of the spring and its first outdoor workout for over two hours on Tuesday afternoon at Haslam Field.

Sunny skies finally greeted the Volunteers after the first two practices of week one were forced indoors due to inclement weather. Heupel’s squad utilized all three fields, working all three phases while pushing tempo in multiple team periods.

Tennessee will take advantage of back-to-back practice days on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning to finish off its second week of the spring.

Defensive coordinator Tim Banks and wide receivers coach Kodi Burns addressed the media following Tuesday’s practice.
