O'Brien dismissed from UT football team
WVLT Tuesday October 11, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Defensive lineman Danny O'Brien was dismissed from the Tennessee football team for violation of team rules, according to a UT spokesperson.

In a news release, officials said the dismissal was not related to the injury he suffered against Texas A&M.

If O'Brien needs additional medical care, a spokesperson said it would be provided by the University of Tennessee.

This is not the first time O'Brien has found himself in trouble for a violation of team rules. As a red-shirt Junior back in September of 2015, O'Brien was suspended for an unspecified violation of rules. The defensive tackle would serve a 2-game ban before regaining a spot on the UT roster. At the time coach Jones said he, " understands the parameters and guidelines."

O'Brien was seeing significant playing time on the interior of the Vol defensive line prior to getting hurt against the Aggies Saturday in College Station.

He flew back with the team Saturday night. On Monday coach Jones said the big thing was that we wanted to be there for him and for his family and that his status, from an injury standpoint, was day to day.
