Following a bounce-back effort in their home opener, the Florida Gators on Wednesday night released their third official depth chart of the 2023 college football season. It will be a battle Saturday night as Florida welcomes the No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium looking to win a 10th straight home game in the series.

The Gators’ injury report has cleaned up significantly (see below), only featuring three names this week. Freshman tight end Tony Livingston and redshirt junior safety Ja’Markis Weston are both out with upper-body injuries, while sophomore WR Thai Chiaokhiao-Bowman is questionable with a lower-body injury.

Florida still holds 16 “OR” designations on the depth chart entering its third game of the season, which is certainly not ideal for head coach Billy Napier but rather just a fact of life for such a young team with inexperienced players still jockeying for position.

Let’s take a look at the depth chart ahead of the Gators’ third game of the season.
