Good news on the injury front this week for the Florida Gators as it looks like five previously hobbled starters will all be in action for the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party against the Georgia Bulldogs in Jacksonville, FL.
RB Jeff Demps (neck) – Sprained against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Returned to practice this week, declared 100% and cleared to play.
MLB Brandon Spikes (groin) – Aggravated two weeks ago against the Arkansas Razorbacks. Dressed for Mississippi State but did not play. Practiced on Thursday, declared 100% and cleared to play.
DT Lawrence Marsh (ankle) – Suffered a high ankle sprain before the season that was re-injured a few weeks ago. Practiced Wednesday and Thursday at full speed and will return to the field on Saturday.
DT Justin Trattou (bicep) – Ruptured tendon against Arkansas, called “out” for Mississippi State immediately. Originally ruled out for four to six weeks, Trattou will “fight through” the pain and is questionable for Saturday.
DT Jaye Howard (knee) – Practiced Wednesday and Thursday at full speed; will play.
DT Brandon Antwine (shoulder) – With Marsh and Howard returning, Antwine will certainly be held out of action this week with a nagging injury that just will not go away.
CB Wondy Pierre-Louis (hamstring) – Injured Saturday at Mississippi State. Out.
