Gator RB Chris Rainey "probable" for Vanderbilt game



Florida senior RB Chris Rainey was reportedly spotted on campus wearing a boot on Tuesday, and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis confirmed Rainey is injured and may be questionable for Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt.

“He’s one of those guys that’s banged up,’’ Weis said. “Would he be full speed today? No, he wouldn’t be full speed today. The only problem with guys like Rainey and (Jeff) Demps is when they get banged up, because their whole game is their speed, if by Saturday they can’t play up to that speed, then you’re better off limiting their role because that’s their game. Their game is utilizing their speed.’’

Weis said all of the Gators players who are nursing injuries practiced, but some were more limited than others.

“In Rainey’s case, it’s going to go right until Saturday,’’ Weis said. “We’ll list him as probable, and that’s right on track.’’
