The Tennessee Volunteers open spring practice Friday in Knoxville, but they will do it without wide receiver Alton "Pig" Howard.

Howard is still enrolled at Tennessee, but is taking a leave of absence from the team to deal with personal issues according to head coach Butch Jones.

Howard caught 44 passes last season for 388 yards and 3 Touchdowns.

The Vols spring game is scheduled for April 12.
