KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones says quarterback Jarrett Guarantano is feeling "much, much better" and is considered "probable" for the Volunteers' game Saturday at Missouri.

Jones also said Monday that safety/kick returner Evan Berry and wide receiver Latrell Williams will miss the remainder of the season.

Guarantano had his right ankle heavily taped for the first half of Saturday's 24-10 victory over Southern Mississippi . He left the game for three snaps in the second quarter and then sat out the entire second half.

Berry played just three games this season because of an unspecified injury. He led all Football Bowl Subdivision players in kickoff return average in 2015.

Williams hasn't played since the season opener because of an unspecified injury.
