Tennessee receiver Cody Blanc will miss the 2014 season after rupturing the Achilles’ tendon in his right foot during the Volunteers’ first preseason practice last Friday.

Second-year coach Butch Jones confirmed the diagnosis following Tuesday’s practice.

“We got the results back,” Jones said. “It’s the Achilles’ tendon, and it’s torn. He’ll miss this year.”

The 6-foot-3, 203-pound junior played in 11 games as a freshman after signing with the Vols out of Knoxville’s Central High School in 2012, and he caught just one pass — a 43-yarder in the second quarter at Alabama — and started against South Carolina last season.
