Gators Will Miss 9 Injured Players During Spring Drills

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.
