Gators' Jeff Demps expected to return for Tennessee



Florida senior RB Jeff Demps is expected to play when the Gators host Tennessee on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Demps left last week's game against UAB in the second half with what coach Will Muschamp said was a shoulder injury. Muschamp said Monday Demps and TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) "should be fine.''

As for CB Jeremy Brown, the news isn't as good. He remains questionable.

“He’s going to try to get out (on the field),’’ Muschamp said. “He’s trying to get out there each week. The injury is much more severe than we first thought. He’s getting some good running work and working hard right now. His running forward is fine, but his lateral change of direction, he worked very hard through the week.’’

Muschamp said there was a chance that freshman TE A.C. Leonard (torn meniscus) could return for some light work today.
