KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Derek Dooley knows just having quarterback Tyler Bray on the field might create a spark for his struggling Volunteers. Just look at what Aaron Rodgers has done for Vanderbilt this season.

Bray returned to practice this week for Tennessee (4-6, 0-6 Southeastern Conference) after breaking his right thumb Oct. 8 loss to Georgia. The sophomore isn't throwing quite as well as he did before the injury, and Dooley said he might wait until Saturday night's pregame warmups before deciding if he'll start Bray against Vanderbilt (5-5, 2-5).

Commodores coach James Franklin has been planning for Bray, who threw 14 touchdowns and averaged 315.8 yards passing in five games.

The Commodores have been far more confident on offense ever since Franklin settled on Rodgers as his starter last month.
