Injuries have limited some key Florida players in recent weeks, but heading into this Saturday’s showdown with South Carolina, the Gators appear to be much healthier.
On Monday, coach Will Muschamp said Monday he expects linebacker Jelani Jenkins, defensive end Dominique Easley and lineman Jon Harrison, James Wilson and Xavier Nixon to play against the Gamecocks. All five missed either part or all of last week’s win at Vanderbilt.
“We’re hopeful to have all those guys back,” Muschamp said. “They’re all definitely going to be fine or probable at the worst, except with (Latroy) Pittman, who would be questionable at this time.”
Jenkins has been slowed with a hamstring injury and Easley has been battling a knee problem. Harrison and Nixon both played against the Commodores, but left with injuries.
