Gators lose another player to injury



Injuries continue to plague the Florida Gators, and heading into one of the biggest games of the season, another player will be out.

Gators OT D.J. Humphries suffered a sprained MCL during practice on Monday and will miss 2-4 weeks, Florida coach Will Muschamp said.

"He’s a quick recovery guy," Muschamp said. "It’s his other knee that he had sprained from earlier in the season, so we’re hoping just two weeks on it and get him back out there."

With Humphries injured, the offensive line will undergo yet more changes.

"Tyler Moore will start at left tackle, and Trenton Brown will start at right tackle," Muschamp said.

Jon Harrison will remain at center, Jon Halapio will be at RG and Max Garcia will play LG.

Since fall camp began, the Gators have lost their starting QB, RB, and WR/KR to season-ending injuries. Eight Gators, including five starters, have sufferfed season-ending injuries.

While Humphries is out, LB Ronald Powell practiceed on Tuesday and is expected to play in the Georgia game.

"I think he can give us some quality snaps," Muschamp said. "Damien Jacobs is good to go, and Darrin Kitchens practiced (Tuesday), which was a good thing. Tyler Murphy’s shoulder is fine, so he’ll be good to go."
