Florida updated its injury report following Wednesday’s practice. Four key players are now ‘probable,’ including LB Antonio Morrison, DT Caleb Brantley, OL David Sharpe and WR Brandon Powell.
Five players, including three starters, are listed as questionable — OL Cam Dillard, DT Joey Ivie (four sacks), DT Thomas Holley, OL Martez Ivey and DL Jordan Sherit, who had been declared ‘out on Monday.
DL Taven Bryan and DE Alex McCalister (34 tackles seven sacks and one interception) have both been upgraded from ‘out’ to ‘doubtful,’ while Jonathan Bullard remains ‘doubtful.’ Bullard has 50 tackles, six sacks and 13.5 tackles for losses. He is a prime candidate for first-team All-American honors, but a cut block in last week’s win over Florida Atlantic left the senior with an injured knee.
As of Wednesday night, most betting shops have Florida St. installed as a 2.5-point favorite with a total of 43 for ‘over/under’ wagers. The Gators have won outright in both games as a home underdog this season, beating Tennessee as one-point ‘dogs and Ole Miss as seven-point puppies.
