Tennessee rising sophomore linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin wasn't seriously injured after being shot in the arm early Sunday morning.

Reeves-Maybin was at a party in his hometown of Clarksville, Tenn., when he said he was standing in the street and someone started shooting and he then felt a sharp pain in his arm. Reeves-Maybin, who was treated and released from Gateway Medical Center, told police that he didn't know who fired the shots.

Reeves-Maybin was able to leave the hospital and attended class on Monday. Tennessee spokesman Jimmy Stanton said Reeves-Maybin didn't even need stitches and that the bullet merely grazed his arm.

After leading the Vols with 11 special-teams tackles in 2013, Reeves-Maybin should compete for a starting job at one of the linebacker spots this fall.
