USF's Andre Davis appears set for East Carolina

TAMPA — Barring any 11th-hour change, senior WR Andre Davis looks "good to go" for Saturday's homecoming game against East Carolina, coach Willie Taggart said Thursday.

Whether Davis, who has missed the past four games with a bruised sternum, will start remains unclear.

"Dre's got to continue to work and get in football shape," Taggart said. "He's missed a lot of games where his teammates have … worked themselves into football shape."

UF: Grier concern

GAINESVILLE — Florida freshman QB Will Grier has missed two weeks of practice with back spasms, and though he has practiced this week and is expected to be ready to play, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said there's a slight concern. "You're always concerned with any injury and the back is obviously a difficult one," Roper said. "He's done a good job, and he's looked normal to me. He didn't miss a meeting, but he wasn't able to get reps. So you lose a little bit there."
