Further evidence that tensions in Knoxville are starting to boil over: Reports indicate (again) that Vols players have been involved in a practice scuffle.

Guard Trey Smith and defensive end Darrell Taylor were involved in a skirmish at practice Thursday, as reported by Jimmy Hyams.

Smith isn’t expected to miss any games. The Vols are off this week, then return to the field October 14 at home against South Carolina.

The incident follows reports of another internal clash involving defensive tackle Shy Tuttle. Questioning over that situation prompted Butch Jones to launch his tirade against the media two weeks ago.

Taylor is already suspended for the first half against South Carolina as a result of his ejection in last week’s 41-0 loss to Georgia.
