Tennessee likes its young receiving talent.

The Vols may get an extensive look at those youngsters this Saturday against No. 11 Oregon.

Senior Gerald Jones, the Vols' leading returning receiver from a year ago, suffered a broken bone in his hand against Tennessee-Martin and will be out the next 2-3 weeks. Also, senior receiver Denarius Moore injured his ankle in the opener and is questionable for the Oregon game. Moore was in a protective walking boot Monday at practice. He scored a pair of long touchdowns in the opener.

Sophomore Zach Rogers is slated to start in place of Jones, but true freshmen Da'Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter may also have to play increased roles. Both were highly recruited players expected to contribute right away.
