PRACTICE REPORT: More key players injured; Two freshmen de-striped

GAINESVILLE -- Florida cornerback Markihe Anderson did not practice on Monday morning and left practice with his right arm in a sling. Florida coach Urban Meyer said that Anderson had a sprained wrist and that an MRI and x-ray were both negative, meaning Anderson should be able to practice next week.

Anderson entered the 2007 preseason as a starter at cornerback but never became a starter after a series of injuries throughout the season.

--Senior receiver Louis Murphy limped out of the Gators' closed practice with a boot on his right leg. Meyer said that Murphy had a sprained ankle.

--Kestahn Moore is an option at fullback, according to Meyer. Meyer says he's excited about Moore playing some fullback.

-Percy Harvin didn't dress this morning. Meyer said Harvin should begin practicing later this week.

--Strong-side linebacker Lorenzo Edwards limped off the practice field this morning. Meyer didn't know if the injury was serious or not.

--Omar Hunter didn't practice this morning but will participate this afternoon, according to Meyer.

--Meyer said that defensive lineman Torrey Davis will definitely not be available for the season opener against Hawaii. Meyer was vague about Davis' status with the team and said that Davis had several off-field issues to address.

--Meyer said that Cornelius Ingram had surgery on Monday morning. The senior tight end recently injured his knee and will not play this season. Even though Ingram will not play, Meyer said that Ingram will be a team captain. Meyer called Ingram a "superstar."

--Defensive end William Green and cornerback Janoris Jenkins appear to be the first freshmen to lose their fall-camp stripes. Neither player had stripes on their helmets after practice today. As the tradition goes, when a Florida Gator freshman loses his stripe during fall camp, he becomes an accepted member of the team.
