KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The only hint Tennessee coach Butch Jones has offered about the status of the Volunteers’ quarterback competition is that he isn’t satisfied with the performance of each contender.

Senior Justin Worley and sophomores Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman all struggled in the first week of training camp. That represents a major concern for a Tennessee program that ranked 111th among Football Bowl Subdivision teams in passing efficiency last season.

Accuracy and efficiency have been issues for all three quarterbacks. Jones said after Thursday’s practice that “we’re not playing winning football at that position right now.”

Worley started seven games, Dobbs made four starts and Peterman had one start last year. The three of them combined to throw 17 interceptions with only 12 touchdown passes.
