Gators Michael Frazier II, Casey Prather and Will Yeguete cleared to return to practice



The horrific gash that Florida F Casey Prather received over his eye in a collision with teammate Mike Rosario in Tuesday night's game at Tennessee required five stiches, but will not keep him out of action this weekend, Florida announced today.

Also, junior F Will Yeguete (right knee) and freshman guard Michael Frazier II (concussion) have been cleared to return to full-contact practice on Thursday.

“They’ll all be out there,” trainer Duke Werner told

Yeguete underwent surgery earlier this month to remove pieces of cartilage from his right knee. At the time, he was averaging six points, 6.8 rebounds, and shooting 58 percent from the floor.

Frazier suffered a concussion in this past Saturday's win over Arkansas.

Without Frazier and Yeguete, Florida was forced to rely mostly on a six-man roation in the loss to Tennessee.

The Gators will host Alabama Saturday, at noon.
