Meyer: Harvin won't play

GAINESVILLE -- Florida receiver Percy Harvin will not play on Saturday, according to Florida coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer said Thursday night that Harvin, the Gators' leading receiver, continued to experience migraine headaches throughtout the day and, for the fourth consecutive day, received treatment at a University of Florida medical facility. Harvin began experiencing headaches related to a sinus infection last week, according to Meyer, and the sophomore did not travel with the team to Columbia, S.C., for the Gators' away game against South Carolina.

"I went and saw him today," Meyer said. "He was in the infirmary all day."

Meyer said he had a former player at Utah suffer from migraines and "they shut him down for four days."

--Redshirt sophomore Marcus Gilbert, a Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas grad, could start at offensive guard in place of injured freshman Maurkice Pouncey on Saturday, according to Meyer.

"[Gilbert] has stepped in and is doing a very nice job," Meyer said.

Pouncey, who injured his ankle against South Carolina, is healthy enough to play, according to Meyer.
