Calbert Out for Season
247 Sports Thursday August 10, 2017

Former Warren County Pioneer football standout K'Rojhn Calbert is set to undergo surgery to repair a pre-existing knee injury and will sit out his first season as a member of the Tennessee Volunteers.
Calbert didn't play his junior year of high school as he was coming off a pair of knee injuries. A source close to Calbert said he will undergo surgery to repair the same anterior cruciate ligiment he tore as a freshman in high school.
The 6-foot-5, 316 pound offensive tackle was one of three freshman offensive linemen on Tennessee's roster. He had reportedly made a good impression on offensive line coach Walt Wells during the first two weeks of pre-season camp.
