Chris Lofton in walking boot

You hate to hear this:

Tennessee men's coach Bruce Pearl said senior guard Chris Lofton was in a protective walking boot Monday, but is expected to play in Thursday's game in Charlotte, N.C., against Louisville.

Lofton suffered the injury during Sunday's win against Butler that moved the Vols into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.

"Chris tweaked his ankle in the first half," Pearl said. "He will be evaluated the next couple of days, but we anticipate he will play Thursday."

I think this just about guarantees that he'll score at least 25.
