INJURY REPORT: UF defenders still gimpy

GAINESVILLE -- Florida defensive end Jermaine Cunningham practiced on Wednesday but was limited, according to UF coach Urban Meyer. Cunningham hyper-extended a knee early during the Gators' 30-6 win against Tennessee. He did finish the game, though. (He's from Atlanta. Those kids are tough.)

If Cunningham can't play on Saturday, UF defensive coordinator Charlie Strong said Duke Lemmens, Justin Trattou and even true freshman William Green could see action.

Florida redshirt junior linebacker Ryan Stamper did not practice on Wednesday. Stamper injured an ankle against Tennessee and wore a protective boot earlier this week. If Stamper can't play on Saturday expect more playing time for Brandon Hicks.

Here's a random thought that popped into my head this morning. Florida has prepared for Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt's 'Wild Rebel' formation this week, but is Ole Miss ready for Florida's 'Wid Gator' formation? This is formation that features Percy Harvin at quarterback and Tim Tebow lined up at wide receiver. It would be just like Florida to try and out-Rebel the Rebs.

The Miami Herald's new redesign looks pretty good but there's only one probem: There's no link to the UF page. What the heck, right? While the Herald's website folks work out the problem, here's a link to the UF page. Bookmark this page right now, college football fans! NEW UF PAGE LINK.

It's nice to see that there are guys that can step in and hold the fort down while banged up guys rest. Let Cunningham sit saturday. UF should win handily without JC in the lineup.

This D is starting to show a little bit of depth.

11 more wins to go Gator fans. Roll on Gator Nation.
