KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt announced Wednesday that Tennessee sophomore defensive back Bryce Thompson and sophomore linebacker Jeremy Banks will travel to Gainesville for the Volunteers' game Saturday at ninth-ranked Florida.

Thompson had been suspended indefinitely following a misdemeanor domestic assault involving a girlfriend on Aug. 24. Banks was arrested this weekend after being pulled over for a traffic violation. After running his record it was determined that he had an active warrant for a failure to appear in court in Knox County for driving on a suspended license.

While it could be Thompson's first action of the season, Banks is coming off the best game of his career in the Vols' 45-0 win over the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Banks intercepted a couple of passes and had three tackles in the win.

Thompson was a Freshman All-American in 2018, leading the team with three interceptions. Pruitt announced last week that he had been re-instated to the team and was being allowed to practice.
