KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt confirmed that outside linebacker Jonathan Kongbo has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the remainder of the season.
“I hate it for Kongbo,” Pruitt said at his weekly Monday press conference. “He’s worked really hard, it’s unfortunate.”
Kongbo suffered the injury in the second half at Auburn after recording two tackles and an interception in the 30-24 win. The injury ends Kongbo’s collegiate career as he is a redshirt senior.
