If you believe what you read regarding the Gator defense, they are hurting. Cornerback Joe Haden is questionable with an ankle sprain, defensive tackle Mike Pouncey is probable with a hyperextended knee and defensive end Lawrence Marsh is questionable with a sprained toe. Florida is already playing without defensive tackle Javier Estopinan, who is lost for the season with a knee injury, while linebacker Brandon Spikes has been bothered by knee tendinitis of late. "We are dealing with some significant injuries on defense," Meyer said. Florida's biggest concern is its secondary. In addition to Haden's injury, fellow corner Markihe Anderson remains less than 100 percent with a knee injury.
In better news for the Gators, Sophomore receiver Percy Harvin was the first to arrive at the Florida locker room Monday, eager to get back on the practice field. Harvin has missed the last two games with an illness. A sinus infection and migraine headaches had sidelined the two-way threat for two games and more than a week of practices."It's just good to be back with the team," Harvin said. "They've just supported me through the whole thing so I'm glad to be back out here with my boys."
