Florida Gators' Emmanuel Moody, Mike Gillislee expected to play against Vanderbilt

Florida Gators senior running back Emmanuel Moody and sophomore running back Mike Gillislee are expected to play Saturday against Vanderbilt after missing several games or playing sparingly due to injuries.

"They are both 100 percent for the first time in quite a while,'' Florida coach Urban Meyer said today. "So they had a really good practice (Tuesday).''

However, kicker Caleb Sturgis will not play. Sturgis is recovering from a back fracture and has not played since the Sept. 25 Kentucky game. Sturgis kicked in practice last week, but has not practiced this week, Meyer said. He said he will not push Sturgis back into action before he's completely healed.

"He won't kick this week,'' Meyer said. "They're still re-evaluating him every week.''

Senior offensive lineman Carl Johnson is in a boot to limit his mobility because of a strained calf, but he is expected to play on Saturday. Defensive tackle Jaye Howard has not practiced this week, but Meyer said he's hoping Howard can participate today. He remains questionable for Saturday.
