TAMPA — While injuries haven't reached pestilent proportions at USF this month, the Bulls hardly are entering their inaugural game week of 2015 unscathed.Reserve rover (strong safety) Hassan Childs sustained a torn right ACL at a recent practice and will miss the season, coach Willie Taggart said Wednesday. A junior with three career interceptions, Childs becomes the Bulls' second ACL casualty this month, joining redshirt freshman receiver Stanley Clerveaux."It (stinks) for the kid, but it's part of the game," Taggart said after the morning workout at Raymond James Stadium, where the Bulls essentially ran through their game-day routine in shorts and helmets."We heal differently around here, so we expect for him to be back sooner than what the doctors say but (also) to be back stronger than what he is now, too."Fortunately for Taggart, the secondary remains one of the team's deepest areas.Former area high school standouts Tajee Fullwood (Tampa Bay Tech) and Devin Abraham (East Lake) appear capable of playing both safety spots, and projected starting rover Nate Godwin recently returned from a hamstring injury.Also, starting left guard Thor Jozwiak sustained an apparent left ankle injury moments before practice ended but limped off on his own power. UF: Lineup comes together GAINESVILLE — Florida appears to be in no hurry to name either Will Grier or Treon Harris the starting quarterback, but other parts of the Gators' lineup are becoming clearer.Martez Ivey has worked with the first-team offensive line at left tackle, something coach Jim McElwain said he hasn't asked many true freshmen to do."You don't think of him really as a freshman right now, just with the way he's playing," McElwain said of the five-star recruit. "That's great to see."McElwain said he expects to use a rotation in the secondary, especially with safety Keanu Neal sidelined with a leg injury. If Neal remains out, McElwain said senior cornerback Brian Poole will slide to safety.Two Armwood High alumni could become important contributors at receiver. Converted quarterback Josh Grady spent time at receiver during Tuesday's practice, and McElwain said UF could install some special packages for Grady.Alvin Bailey has yet to record a catch, but McElwain said the Gators are expecting him to produce in his redshirt sophomore season."We're asking Alvin to really step up," McElwain said. "He's got to make some plays for us." Around the nation DUKE: Cornerback Bryon Fields will miss the season with a torn right ACL. EAST CAROLINA: Quarterback Kurt Benkert will miss the season with a knee injury that came a week after the sophomore was named the starter. FRESNO STATE: Sophomore Zack Greenlee will be the starting quarterback this season. RUTGERS: Coach Kyle Flood said that when he was contacted by university officials about communicating with a faculty member regarding the academic status of a player, he didn't know he was being investigated for possibly violating school or NCAA rules. Flood reversed course after being asked a day earlier about whether university officials had contacted him about their investigation.
