The toughest stretch of Tennessee's season just got tougher.

The Volunteers face a stretch of four ranked teams in the next five weeks, and they'll have to navigate it without quarterback Tyler Bray, who fractured the thumb on his throwing hand late in Saturday night's loss to Georgia when he hit it on the helmet of Bulldogs linebacker Christian Robinson.

The sophomore's recovery time is an estimated six weeks, according to a UT release.
