Florida coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday night he thought Antwine would be released later in the evening, but hospital officials said Wednesday morning he remained a patient at Shands Hospital in Gainesville.

Meyer said Antwine has been in the hospital about a week with the problem. His mother is in town from the Dallas area to be with him.

“It’s a low muscle, lower back, muscular problem,'' Meyer said. "It’s been a painful week for him. It’s a muscle issue that’s very painful, but it’s not a structural problem.''

Antwine, from Garland, Texas, has played in four games this season, registering seven tackles.
