KNOXVILLE (News Sentinel) -

After another shaky performance by Justin Worley, Tennessee coach Butch Jones has thrown open the quarterback race to everyone -- including true freshmen Riley Ferguson and Joshua Dobbs.

"The position is open," Jones said. "Whoever has the best week of practice will play."

Worley has completed 35 of 57 passes for 372 yards. He's thrown five touchdowns and only one interception, but has struggled to find receivers downfield.

Jones emphasized that all four quarterbacks will get reps in practice this week as the Vols (2-1) open the SEC season at Florida (1-1) at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville (TV: CBS, 3:30 p.m.)
