Florida coach Urban Meyer updated the Gators’ injury situation, prep for the South Carolina game and more during his weekly Thursday post-practice press conference. Here are the latest Florida updates:

Gators almost healthy
Florida only has a few remaining injured starters, all of whom are expected to play Saturday. Running back Jeff Demps (foot) is probable but will not play the whole game, Meyer said. Defensive tackle Jaye Howard (sprained ankle) will play limited reps. WR Andre Debose (sprained ankle) is closer to full speed, Meyer said.

Jenkins gets extra year of eligibility
Senior reserve CB Moses Jenkins was granted a medical hardship waiver and received a fifth year of eligibility after missing part of two seasons with injuries. Jenkins missed much of last year with a concussion and has been out much of this season with a hyperextended elbow.
“He’s still not back 100 percent, but he’s going to play for us on kickoff,” Meyer said. “Good guy.”

Easley earning way back
Freshman DT Dominique Easley did not travel with Florida to Vanderbilt for “a lot of reasons,” Meyer said after the Gators’ win on Saturday. He added Monday that he thought the issues could be worked out, and it appears they are.
“Easley’s doing fine, by the way,” Meyer said Thursday. “Not practicing yet. He’s just fulfilling his obligation, but he’s back with the team.”

Jenkins to get help returning punts
CB Janoris Jenkins has been the team’s punt returner this year, but he could be getting help on Saturday. Meyer said Debose and WR/RB Chris Rainey could also return punts.
“They’re getting better,” he said. “I think JJ’s done admirable.”
Meyer said he is still evaluating who would return on Saturday.
