Tennessee quarterback Brian Maurer exits game against Alabama with another concussion

Tennessee’s freshman quarterback Brian Maurer has ignited the Volunteers’ offense over the last three weeks. Unfortunately, he’s also taken his fair share of shots, too.

Maurer was knocked out of the game for the second straight week against Alabama on Saturday night, sustaining another concussion, per Jeremy Pruitt. Maurer exited last week’s game against Mississippi State after landing awkwardly on his head during a scramble. It was a mystery whether or not Maurer would play against Alabama, but Tennessee opted to give him a chance.

He didn’t make it through the first quarter, taking a shot and slamming his head against freshman tackle Darnell Wright.
