Tim Jordan

 

Tennessee rising senior running back Tim Jordan was arrested early Saturday morning in Lakeland, Fla. after a traffic stop carried out by local police.

Jordan, who played in twelve games for the Vols this past season, was booked into the Polk County Jail this morning on three charges. According to records, Jordan was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, possession of narcotic paraphernalia, and possession of fewer than 20 grams of cannabis.

The bond amount for Jordan was $2,000 and it had been paid.

Jordan was set to be released around 9 p.m. ET Saturday night, according to a jail employee we spoke with this evening. Tennessee players are set to return to campus within the next week for voluntary workouts, but the status of Jordan is now in limbo.

Jordan rushed for 428 yards and four touchdowns this past season for Tennessee. He has amassed over 1,200 total yards and four touchdowns during his career for the Vols. He has been expected to contribute to a Tennessee backfield along with Eric Gray, Ty Chandler and others.

When reached for a statement, a Tennessee spokesperson declined to comment.
