KNOXVILLE — Tennessee reserve offensive lineman Riley Locklear has undergone surgery for a meniscus tear.

The injury occurred Saturday during Tennessee's 38-12 loss at No. 2 Georgia. Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said Wednesday during the Southeastern Conference coaches' teleconference that Locklear underwent surgery for a "very small" tear in the cartilage in one of his knees.

Pruitt said Locklear would "probably be out at least 10 to 15 days, and then he'll be back ready to go."

Locklear, a sophomore guard, has appeared in four of Tennessee's five games this season.

Tennessee (2-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) has this week off before visiting No. 8 Auburn (4-1, 1-1) on Oct. 13.
