Lady Vol is injured at practice

KNOXVILLE — Tennessee sophomore forward Glory Johnson suffered a left shoulder injury during Wednesday's practice and is being listed as day to day.

There was no immediate word on the nature of the injury. The official report was that Johnson was being evaluated.

UT Coach Pat Summitt expressed optimism that Johnson would be available for Sunday's season opener against Baylor in the State Farm Tipoff Classic at Thompson-Boling Arena. Her first thought was that the injury wouldn't present long-term problems.

The injury occurred during a shooting drill. Johnson was attended to by UT medical staffers for at least 15 minutes. The other players were concerned enough to convene a prayer circle.
