Three days from the Florida-FSU game, here’s the latest on the Gators’ injuries from coach Urban Meyer:
– Cornerback Janoris Jenkins is expected to play after suffering a slight concussion last week.
– Cornerback Jeremy Brown shouldn’t be limited in practice today and is expected to play Saturday. He did not start vs. South Carolina because of a hamstring injury. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said Tuesday that freshman Cody Riggs would be ready to replace Brown if he could not play.
– LB A.J. Jones (hamstring) should play, Meyer said.
– WR Andre Debose has regressed and is questionable with an ankle sprain. He initially hurt his ankle against Mississippi State on Oct. 16 and missed the Georgia game following the bye week. Debose played against Vanderbilt and South Carolina, returning a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown against the Gamecocks. He did not dress for last week’s game vs. Appalachian State.
– Center Mike Pouncey left practice early Tuesday, walking back to the stadium shirtless. Meyer said he was lightheaded and that it was not from contact. He will play Saturday.
– OL Matt Patchan is out for the season after having a second surgery on the wrist he hurt in the preseason. Meyer had been hopeful that Patchan would return this year, but said surgery was needed after the injury “never improved.” He added that he hoped Patchan could be back to full contact by spring practice. It’s likely he will get a medical redshirt after missing the entire season.
