Arian Foster returned to the practice field Thursday for Tennessee, but the senior tailback won't be back in the starting lineup Saturday when the Vols (3-7, 1-5 SEC) visit Vanderbilt (6-4, 4-3).

The Good: Possesses impressive burst and lateral mobility for a back his size. Runs with good shiftiness through the hole and can consistently step through tackles. Has a powerful frame and runs with a good pad level through the hole. Displays an impressive first step attacking the line of scrimmage and gets up to top-end speed very quickly. The Bad: Does not run with the type or power or strength his frame would indicate. Tries to run like a back half his size and consistently will dance and try to make people miss instead of driving for tough yards inside.
