Land O'Lakes tight end Kent Taylor remains day to day with a broken hand but could return to the field this week, his father, Rob, said Tuesday afternoon.

Rob Taylor said his son is scheduled to have more X-rays on Wednesday. If the bone is healed, doctors will put him in a different cast that will let him play Friday in the Gators' district opener against Hernando (1-2). The winner of that contest at Land O'Lakes (1-1) will likely emerge as the favorite for the Class 6A, District 6 title.

"I know he's champing at the bit his senior year just to play," Rob Taylor said.

Taylor, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound senior, is a four-star recruit and the country's top tight end prospect. He caught 34 balls for 571 yards and nine touchdowns last fall but broke his hand in a preseason game against Anclote.
