Tennessee Volunteers football: Charles Mosley involved in car accident

The Tennessee Volunteers defensive line took a potentially big hit on Sunday, as incoming freshman lineman Charles Mosley was involved in a car accident.

The Times Free Press is reporting that the 6’5″, 374-pound lineman was injured in a car wreck, but was unable to confirm the severity with the Volunteers football program.

However, Teran Johnson of Tennessee student station WUTK is hearing that Mosley suffered a broken leg.

Mosley’s leg injury appears to be very severe, as Johnson followed up the original report with a retweet of more information on the severity of the broken leg:

The Vols football program have yet to confirm the severity of the injury, but if Mosley does have a broken tibia and fibula that is a very severe injury to come back from. Fibula fractures are a big deal because they are the weight-bearing bone in the leg and for an offensive lineman at 374 pounds, that’s a lot of weight to bear.

Mosley was a 4-star prospect according to 247Sports, and was ranked the No. 24 defensive tackle and the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee.
