Jeff Demps and Sharrif Floyd will play vs. Tennessee



Florida coach Will Muschamp said during the SEC teleconference today that senior RB Jeff Demps will play when the Gators host Tennessee this weekend.

"He's going to be fine, he's practicing,'' Muschamp said.

Muschamp also said DT Sharrif Floyd has made arrangements to repay the nearly $2,700 that the NCAA ruled last week he is required to pay as part of regaining his eligibility. Floyd was suspended for the first two games, so this will be his season-opener.

As for LB Dee Finley, who was arrested on Monday and released on his own recognizance on Tuesday, Muschamp was a little less forthcoming.

"I’m handling that,'' Muschamp said. "We’ll work through that. That’s where we are.''

Whether or not Finley is suspended for this weekend's game is currently unknown.

Finley sent his apology to Florida fans via his Twitter account saying: "I apologize #GATORNATION.. now watch bounce back."
