Florida football depth chart: Bunch of offensive players, including Trevor Etienne, on injured report

Following just third straight win, which gave the Florida Gators their first winning streak since 2020, head coach Billy Napier on Wednesday night released his fifth official depth chart of the 2023 college football season. When Florida visits the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday afternoon, it will be as close to full strength as it has been this season.

The suspensions stemming from the last play of the Tennessee game are over, and both redshirt junior center Kingsley Eguakun and freshman wide receiver Eugene Wilson III are not only active as first-teamers at their respective positions but completely off the injury report. There are still some injury issues at tight end with other ailments that could affect the receiving group, but for the most part, the Gators appear good to go.

The vast majority of the “OR” designations remain on the defensive side of the ball as the unit continues to find its footing under first-year defensive coordinator Austin Armstrong. There is also one key starting job that has officially been won, while another position that has caused some controversy remains unchanged.

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