Spring practice gets underway in Gainesville this week but for a number of Gators, they’ll be too banged up to participate. That’s hardly the start to Year Two that Will Muschamp would like.
According to The Orlando Sentinel, the injury list looks like this:
Jeremy Brown, CB — recovering from a knee injury that cost him the 2011 season
Dominique Easley, DT — recovering from an ACL injury suffered against Florida State in November
Kendric Johnson, DE — out with “shoulder issues”
Cole Gilliam, OL — more shoulder issues
Tommy Jordan, OL — ditto
Ian Silberman, OL — double ditto
Lerentee McCray, LB — rehabbing his own shoulder injury
Marcus Roberson, CB — suffered a “scary” neck injury late last season
Neiron Ball, LB — he’s been cleared by doctors, but he’s still going to sit out spring drills as he recovers from a burst blood vessel in his brain that cost him the 2011 season
On the plus side, Florida has in part recovered from the roster attrition that accompanied the change-over from Urban Meyer to Muschamp. They have better depth this spring than last.
But no coach wants a tenth of his team on the shelf for spring practice, regardless of depth elsewhere.
